Brief history of Barangay Paiton
Barangay Paiton was originally a "sitio" of barangay Bintana. In the succeeding years, a tribal group known as "Subanens” settled in the area and owned a vast tract of land. Their leader was Datu Laras Angcap.
Datu Laras with the rest of the tribe roamed around their land and found out a creek with numerous fishes which they called “pait-pait." The fish became a food source as Subano's viand.
Sometime later, Datu Laras Angcap decided to call for a meeting to give a name to the place. After presenting ideas and suggestions, a unanimous decision was arrived at. The place would be called " PAITON" because of the large number of "pait-pait" fishes. The “TON" a sounded like a stone because the fishes lived under the stones.
Datu Laras Angcap became the first "Timoay" in the place. Settling disputes, arguments and misunderstanding became his obligation. By virtue of his rank, he also officiated weddings.
In 1952, the sitio became Barangay Paiton. The first Tenyente del Barrio was Bernardino Cinco. Jose Vince followed in 1952-1957, Juanito F. (Danilo) in 1958-1964, Agripino N. Pedrosa in 1965-1972, Teodoro Talan in 1973-1989, Lucino Montuerto in 1990- 1992, Ebeneser B. Apao in 1993-2007 and Martin W. Mendoza from 2008 - up to the time of this writing.
