Second Generation of Fiel Clan in the Philippines

La Casa de Familia Fiel.

Children of Fortunato Augustin Lucero Fiel – Teodora Badiang Bangoy (first wife); Magdalena Gelbolingo (second wife); Angustias Cabiling (third wife); Ester Teves (fourth wife); Abelarda Soledad Yap (fifth wife); Zita Rocha (sixth wife); Jacoba Suarez (seventh wife); Valentina Crisologa Briones (eighth wife); Olympia Rodriguez Neri (ninth wife); Ursula Aleson Arnaiz (tenth wife); Margarita Lorenza Marquez Saavedra (11th wife); Pantaleona Lucia dela Cerna Aparis (12th wife).


Note. During Fortunato Agustin’s time, there was no Certificate of No Marriage (CENOMAR) requirement yet in the Philippines. It is a certification issued by the Philippine Statistics Authority stating that a person has not contracted any marriage. This explains why he ended up with so many wives.


Having said that, I am already part of the 9th generation of the Fiel clan in the Philippines. I have been into family documentation since 2000 and I have learned that knowing one’s roots is very rewarding. It makes me connected to the past, giving me a sense of history while providing me a sense of direction for the future.

Fortunato Agustin is the lovechild of Felizardo Fiel and Generosa Lucero. Generosa is from barrio Canipaan, Argao. This is presently shared by Barangay Bagacay of Sibonga and Barangay Guiwanon of Argao. Little is known of Generosa’s parents. They were Fortunato Estanislao Lucero y Veloso, the son of Elias Geronimo Lucero and Generosa Margarita Veloso of Parian, Cebu City and Justa Cristina Diez y Mirafuentes, the daughter of Prudencio Wenceslao Diez and Teotima Antonia Mirafuentes of visita de Sibonga of the town of Carcar.


First wife Teodora is from Baclayon, Bohol; Fifth wife Abelarda Soledad Yap is from Parian, Cebu; Sixth and seventh wife Zita Rocha and Jacoba Suarez are cousins from Sitio Ubos, Tagbilaran, Bohol; Eighth wife Valentina is from Malabuyoc, Cebu; Ninth wife Olympia is from Cagayan de Oro. Tenth wife Ursula is from Tanjay, Negros; Eleventh wife Margarita Lorenza is from Zamboanga; Twelth wife Lucia is from Ormoc, Leyte (La Casa de Familia Fiel; Pier Giorgio Dela Cruz Salamat).


Today, there stands an ancestral house of the Rocha-Suarez clan in Sitio Ubos, Tagbilaran City, Bohol. This place, however, is not yet explored by any of our Fiel Clan historians. (Fr. Felmar Castrodes Fiel, SVD)
