Descendants of Bartolo Cabahug and Florencia Seno

Protocolos Page

Beginning of Bartolome Cabajug's 1862 Entry in the Protocolos

Bartolo Cabahug was born around 1830, judging from the age of his wife at the time her death3.  In the Protocolos, his name is recorded as Bartolome, while later he was referred to as Bartolo.  Bartolo married Florencia Seno, probably in the mid-1850s.  Florencia was born about 18343.

Bartolome appears in the Protocolos three times and the entries provide interesting background on his life.  In 1862, Bartolome granted a power-of-attorney to Tomas Senisa to plead a case against Don Alipio Mangubat, Gebernadorcillo (Mayor) of Borbon42.  The case involved a dispute over a piece of agricultural land in Borbon.  The beginning of this entry, shown above, indicates that Bartolome was a mestizo and a vecino de Mandaue (resident of Mandaue).  The following page shows that Don Pedro Normandia acted as translator.  At this time, Bartolo was clearly not fluent in Spanish.  From the record, Bartolo was apparently interested in agricultural production and ran into difficulty with the local authorities.

The next entry in the Protocolos, in 1873, records the sale of land in Mandaue by Agustin Sanchez, vecino de Consolacion (resident of Consolacion) to Bartolome Cabajug de la misma vecindad (of the same vicinity)43.  This suggests that Bartolo may have lived in Consolacion, though the meaning of tabindex the text is not completely clear.  Since the Town of Consolacion was founded in1871, from part of Mandaue, "vicinity" might refer to the nearby Town of Mandaue.  In any case, Bartolome was living in the Mandaue area at the time.

The final entry in the Protocolos, in 1878, records the sale of land in Borbon between Cipriano and Fruto Eveñes and Modesto Cabajug44.  The description of the piece of land being sold, includes the owners of adjacent properties.  In this case the lands of Bartolome Cabajug lay to the South and to the East of the subject property, while that of Apolonio Mangubat lay to North and that of Pedro Mangubat to the West.  The close proximity of Bartolome's land to that of the Mangubat family may be related to the dispute mentioned above.

The above information shows that Bartolo was a successful businessman, probably owning several pieces of land devoted to agricultural production.  Typically, he would have contracted with tenant farmers to work the land and would share in the crops, which he then transferred for trade in the local and international markets.  Bartolo continued to live in the Mandaue area, probably Consolacion.  He died there sometime before 1900.  Florencia died on June 28, 1916, in a barangay of Consolacion, Mandaue, at the age of 823.  The Town of Concolacion had reverted to Mandaue in the early 1900, due to financial difficulties.  Consolacion was re-established as independent town in 1920.
