And since at that time, the Spanish friars leave a great influence in giving names to newly establish barrios, the place beside Caingin was named San Agustin, in honor of a great teacher and Doctor of the Catholic Church. It was the feast day of San Agustin when the Spanish missionaries came to this place and immediately built a chapel for worship of the natives.
