Poblacion is the town center of Ubay, which was first listed as a pueblo in 1844 based on "Guia de Forasteros" (Guide of Foreigners), a document at the Philippine National Archives which was published yearly from 1834 to 1865. Upon establishing as a pueblo, Ubay (together with its town center, Poblacion) became an independent town from Talibon on January 15, 1844 on civil aspects. Later, it became a separate parish on October 5, 1877 through King of Spain Alfonso XII's Royal Order No. 695. On October 22, 1877, Spanish Governor General Domingo Moriones y Murillo issued a decree declaring Ubay as a separate town in religious aspect. [1]
