Regarding the holding of a Consultative Meeting presided by the Politico-Military Government of the Visayas on the creation of barrios Guinsularan and Madua independent from their matrices (poblacion) Guindulman and Jagna, district of Cebu to a town called “Duero”.

The proposition was approved by the Decree dated 8 January 1863 issued by then Governor General of the Philippines Echagüe.
