How it got its name
Once upon a time, so the old folks told, during the Spanish regime, there was a throng of farm workers walking to their way home one weary afternoon. They were on their half way home when they meet a group of Spaniards in patrol. As the two group meet, the Spaniards not knowing the name of the place, asked the farmers what’s the name of the place. Since the farmers did not understand Spanish and they feared the Spaniards then, they answered “Ambilay” sit, presuming that the Spaniards was asking what the name of the cloth hanging is across their shoulders.
From then on, the place was called Ambilay by the Spaniards. Later on the letter, “m” was omitted and the place now is called Abilay.
