History of Caloocan City, Philippines

Source copied Verbatim from the LGU of Caloocan City

How Caloocan got its present name is a story by itself. According to opinions and even beliefs, the name Caloocan orginated from the Tagalog word “lo-ok” (bay) in view of its proximity to Manila Bay being located in Dagat-Dagatan, a small lake separated by Manila Bay and town of Navotas. Others believed that the word “lo-ok” meant “sulok” or corner. In the past, Caloocan was actually located “at the corner” where the ends of the old towns of Tondo and Tambobong (Malabon) meet.

The first name of Caloocan when it was still a small barrio of Tondo was Aromahan or Espina as the Spaniards used to call it. The site of the barrio was located in a low place called Libis, west of the center of the poblacion of Caloocan. It was then commonly called Libis Espina.

In 1762 the spanish Augustinian priests reached the insular “lo-ok”, and eventually established the first Catholic Church the barrio in 1765. However, the spiritual administration of Caloocan was transferred to the Recollectos in 1814.

In 1802 Caloocan began to grow. When it was converted into a town in 1815, the poblacion had to be moved from the western fringe to its present site.

People of Caloocan City, Philippines

  • Population (as of 2010): 1,489,040
  • Population (as of Aug 1, 2007): 1,378,856

  • Registered Voters (2010): 636,255
Article below is from the LGU of Caloocan City Verbatim:

Early records reveal that the first inhabitants of Caloocan were composed of “Chinese, mestizos or Indians of the Philippines. Father Zuñiga described them as dull-colored, thin-beared, flat nosed, and black-eyed. In their customs, ingenuity, and qualities, they are like the rest of the nation..”

The arable portions of Libis Espina owned by the Augustinians were leased to the inhabitants. At that time, there were only about 500 inhabitants.

Most of the people were fishermen, especially those who resided near Dagat-Dagatan, the Navotas and Manila Bay boundaries. Those who inhabited in the mountain areas were engaged in agriculture, producing crops. The large agricultural areas were those in the Maysilo Estate, owned by the Jesuits; the Piedad owned by Don Pedro de Galarraga; and the Cruz and Naligas Estates, owned by the friars.

The British invasion in 1762 and the expulsion of the Jesuits from the Philippines in 1768 have totally changed the socio-economic conditions of the inhabitants. The Spanish Government confiscated most of the agricultural lands in Caloocan, the bigger portion of which was owned by the Maysilo Estate. Later on, this was sold to a Spanish mestizo.

The British occupation of manila had ill effects on the peace and order condition of Caloocan. When they gained full control of the Walled city, they opened the jails and set all the prisoners free. Based on the account of Father Zuñiga, these prisoners, joined by other restless elements sought refuge in Caloocan, “murdered men were seen on the roads, naked and pierced with dagger stabs, thereby showing the terrible conditions in which they had been killed to rob them.”

When Caloocan became a town in 1815, it occupied a vast territory. Its territorial jurisdiction was bounded on the north by the barrio of Tinajeros, Malabon, and Tanza River; on the east by the town of Marikina; on the south by the towns of Sampalok and Santa Cruz, the Hacienda de Santa Mesa, and the sitio of San Francisco del Monte; and on the west by the towns of Tondo and Malabon. The first gobernadorcillo was Mariano Sandoval, while the first curate was Fray Manuel Vaquerro, a Recollect.

Miguel Saludes became the first capitan municipal when the Maura Law changed the Title of the town head during the last three years of the Spanish regime. Others who held the same position were Silverio Baltazar and Pedro Sevilla.

The socio-economic condition greatly improved after Caloocan was established as a town in 1815. The town became peaceful. It no longer suffered from restless residents caused by the collection of tributes, forced labor, agrarian unrest, and oppression committed by the Spanish officials.

Economic History of Caloocan City, Philippines

article from the LGU of Caloocan City

Shortly after the town was constituted, people were producing various agricultural products and engaged in weaving, rope making, quarrying, and even earthen-jar making. As a consequence of the galleon trade, the country’s merchants experienced a boom in the trade between Manila and Acapulco. The flow of products from the Philippines resulted in the inflow of more Mexican money. Within the context of trade necessities for the mutual benefit of Manila and Acapulco, the demand for Philippine products increased. Export products produced by Caloocan entrepreneurs were in great demand in Manila to meet the commitments of the Philippine traders to Acapulco.

When the Manila Railroad Company Limited started developing a railway, the people of Caloocan had high hopes of enjoying economic benefits upon the completion of the project.

On February 23, 1892 the hopes of the people of Caloocan for a better socio-economic life became a reality when part of the Manila-Dagupan line from Manila to Mabalacat, Pampanga was inaugurated. Historian Leopoldo R. Serrano described the event thus: “ The locomotive name Hernando Cortes pulling two de luxe cars, two first class cars, six second-class cars, and two freight cars arrived at the Caloocan station at 7:17 o’clock in the morning. The train carried the governor general; the archbishop of Manila; the segundo cabo; the intendant; and the civil governors of Manila, Pampanga, and Tarlac-the three provinces benefited by the lines. These dignitaries spent some time in Caloocan inspecting the warehouses and shops of the Manila Railroad Company.”

The door of economic opportunities for the people of Caloocan was fully opened when the railroad line from Manila to Dagupan was finally opened on November 23, 1892 ten (10) months after the Manila-Mabalacat line was inaugurated.

Quoting again historian Serrano, “The completion of the Manila-Dagupan line proved to be a great boon to the inhabitants of Caloocan. It brought the town closer to Manila and other points in Central Luzon, facilitated the transportation of the products of the town to those points, and gave employment to many residents of Caloocan. The coming of the British and Spanish railway employees also favorably affected the town.”

Natural Resources of Caloocan City, Philippines

Protect the environment

It is sad but true that as of the year 2012 the rivers of the Philippines continue to be the #1 Sewer Systems of the Philippines.

Protect & Save the Rivers. Do not let your sewer drain into the river. Your community can be the first to initiate this project.
Build your riverbank protection with a built-in gutter system. Reforest within Ten Years - Guaranteed!

Let us plant more trees in every barangay in the entire Philippines. It does not make any difference if the barangay is urban, partially urban or rural; we need more trees. Trees will prevent erosion, provide oxygen, prevent green house effect, and even a place of business for the shade tree mechanic.

The Philippines is a tropical country and practically anything will grow. The DENR has the planting trees project that goes on every year. Lots of picture taking for the media. Planting trees one by one is the "human" way of doing it. This individual planting of trees is good if done to "line" the roads and highways with trees or along fences or property divisions, or if you have a plantation.

To reforest the nation of the Philippines we have to plant trees the "mother nature" way. Sow the seeds during the rainy season. Go deep into "bald" forests and plant trees by sowing seeds. If there's not enough volunteers to do this, use the military helicopters to fly over the designated areas and sow the seeds.

Guaranteed within a few years, The Philippines will be lush again. >>Read More

We are using our rivers as our sewer system. If you ask a Filipino, "Are the Filipinos a clean people?" The answer is an automatic, "Yes!". However, the Filipinos are suffering from the same disease or attitude as most people do, and that is the "NIMBY" disease or "NIMBY" attitude. (NIMBY) Not In My Back Yard. So it is OK to dump my garbage and sewer there. Not mine! Someone else will take care of it.

This attitude is killing our rivers. Your great-grandparents, grandparents or parents were once proud to tell the stories of how they enjoyed swimming in the river behind your house or nearby. However, you can't say the same or tell the same stories to your kids or grand kids. Why? Because your generation is killing the river.

Tight Watch

For fear of a possible entry into the country of meat that is contaminated with a mad cow disease, Caloocan City Mayor Enrico has directed the city's veterinary office to watch over peddlers of beef at the city's local markets.

Echiverri cited the report from the National Meat Inspection Service (NMIS) and Department of Health (DOH), stating that one out of every 100 kilos of beef imported from countries such as the United States of America (USA), Canada, France and the rest of the European Union may have been "contaminated."

According to the National Meat Inspection Service (NMIS) and the Department of Health (DOH), one out of every 100 kilos of beef imported from these countries may be contaminated.

Also referred to as Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE) by veterinarians, mad cow disease attacks the brain and spinal cord of cows, therefore giving the suffering animal some “crazy” characteristics.

The stated that the disease can be acquired by man by consuming contaminated beef products. This kind of ailment is called variant Creuzfeldt-Jacob Disease (vCJD). Health experts said that mad cow disease thrives in the brain and spinal cord of cows.

The DOH said that the US Department of Agriculture recently issued a directive saying that these particular parts must be disposed of to prevent them from reaching the market place.

Health experts said that among the symptoms of vCJD are; depression, loss of coordination with motor skills, and speech defects, while other manifesta¬tions may be determined via Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) but only if the disease is in the advanced stages.

Due to the threat this disease poses to one's health, Echiverri advised consumers to be very picky with the meat they buy, since the extremely hot weather can potentially ruin or contaminate other livestock meat in the market.

The local chief executive also appealed to traders not to sell meat if they are not 100 percent sure that the meat they sell is not contaminated with the this kind of disease or any other harmful disease.
