Historical profile of Barangay Capalaran
The first settlers of Barangay Capalaran were the Subanens who engaged in migratory farming. They were headed by a certain ‘’Timo-ay,” their tribal leader. The Subanens cultivated the area but with the coming of the Christians, they transferred to the forest lands.
According to a legend, after the Subanens evacuated to the forest lands, a couple named Fabian and Pastor Paller came to the area. They planted corn, rice, bananas, coconut and many other crops. In 1926, the couple Pastor and Fabian were granted a beautiful baby girl. The people observed that after the baby was born, the people enjoyed bountiful harvest. There were plenty of fruits and vegetables in their farms. The animals they domesticated multiplied. So, they decided to name the baby ‘’ Palaran,” a Cebuano term which means a charm, one who brings luck. Later the place was named Palaran in honor of the baby. The term Kapalaran was later adopted.
In the 1950’s, the Ocampos family worked for the registration of the place so that it would be recognized as an independent Barangay. In 1959, a new Barangay was born through Republic Act 2370. Over the years, ‘’Kapalaran’’ was changed to Capalaran.
