ORGANIZATION/ COMMUNITY CONTEXT San Remigio was formerly known as "Kanghagas", a kind of tree that grew there in abundance. When the Spanish conquistadores came, they identified a town site by clearing the kanghagas trees through self-help labor. Kanghagas was a part of barangay Punta. Initially the visita of Kanghagas was within the jurisdiction of Bantayan. In 1850 Bogo established a parish, and the three barrios of Kanghagas, Lambusan and Victoria (Maarat) became under the civil governance of Bogo. Kangahagas was renamed Isabel after the queen of Spain. In 1864 these barrios establish a new parish named as San Juan Nepomuceno Parish and a new town was called San Remigio.
