The Origin of the name of “Consolacion”

The name consolacion came after the governor’s daughter and patron saint San Narciso after the Governor’s wife Narcisa. This is an act of gratitude to the Governor of Cebu in 1871 for granting the request of making Consolacion a town/pueblo when it separated as little barrio of Mandaue. The request was done because people will come long way to Mandaue to pay taxes and render free labor to the mentioned adjacent town.
