Talisay was formerly an estate of the Augustinians in 1648. The town had no church of its own and they had
to go to San Nicolas for baptisms, weddings and burial rites. It became separated from San Nicolas by virtue of Royal Decree
of August 16, 1856.
Two versions are given on why Talisay is so-named. One is that it is named after Magtalisay,
a kind of
tree which used to be in abundance in the area. Another is that it was named after a town in Spain.
During the Spanish Revolution, three sons of Talisay were generals in the revolutionary forces. Two brothers
today also became generals: AFP Chief of Staff Gen. Lisandro Abadia and
PAF Commanding Officer Loven Abadia.
general of this era is from Talisay , Ge. Isagani V. Ocampo.
March 26, 1945 is a day to remember not only by the residents of Talisay, but also by the entire Cebuanos.
It was on this day when American Division, US Army landed in Talisay to begin the liberation of Cebu from the invaders - exactly
2 years, eleven months and sixteen days after the Japanse landed on precisely the same spot on April 10, 1942.
