It was mainly due to this fact that the Spanish authorities developed it into a headtown or cabecera for the whole island of Siquijor.American PeriodWith the coming of the Americans at the turn of the century, Canoan still was regarded as a cabecera where lieutenant governor James Fugate, the first American governor of Siquijor, held office for sixteen years ending in 1916.
