Sibonga, Cebu and the Fiel Clan

Sibonga is a 3rd class municipality in the province of Cebu, Philippines. According to the 2007 census, it has a population of 40,765 people.

Many of us may find our Fiel roots back in this small municipality. The Fiel families scattered around Mindanao descended from the Fiel family of Sibonga.

Before the World War II, many Fiel families left Sibonga. The reason is primarily agricultural. Guimbangco-an, the barangay where most Fiels lived, is a rocky land. Gagmay kaayo ang tubo sa mga mais didto! they looked for greener pastures, and mindanao proved to be the most fitting ground.

Elias Fiel, who was married to Felomina Surposa had 10 children.

These ten children are: Donato Fiel, Aniceto Fiel, Felipe Fiel, Julian Fiel, Nicolasa Fiel, Cristina Fiel, Bonifacio Fiel, Rosa Fiel, Teodoro Fiel and Santiago Fiel.

TEODORO SURPOSA FIEL and one of his brothers, according to oral tradition, courted one woman. The woman did not chose Teodoro. So, when it was decided that they go to Mindanao, Teodoro opted to stay in Sibonga and eventually went to Leyte.
