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. In the same year, the authorities in Manila, acting on the recommendation of local authorities officially declared Canoan as a capital town.
