HistoryEdit

Tibiao was part og Nalupa from 1596-1840. Nalupa with its central government in present-day Jinalinan controlled the area of what is now Tibiao, Barbaza and Laua-an. In early 1730, Nalupa gradually depopulated due to the Moro pirate attacks. By 1733, Culasi had a direct control of Nalupa and Pandan. In 1796, Nalupa ceded from Culasi. As an arrabal, notable village chieftains were Paris, Oguid Pagsuguiron and Nicolas Amar (1818).

In 1840, Tibiao separated from Nalupa and became an independent pueblo. Capitan Mariano de los Santos became its first gobernadorcillo based in Paris (a sitio of barangay Importante).

In 1841, Capitan Juan Nicolas moved the seat of government in Camiabsan.

In 1850, the catholica church was established with padre Oloy as its first Cura Parroco.

In 1851, Capitan Ildefonso Yuson transferred the poblacion to its present site.

In 1898, Pedro Bandoja (changed his name to Bandong) was the local revolutionary leader of the town.
