The Municipality of Alaminos was first founded of Zambals led by one known as Suyang. This group left the mountains of their native province of Zambales and journeyed north in search of a new home on lowlands near the seas.At about the same time, another group of people left eastern Pangasinan to escape persecutions by the Spaniards and established towns where they could enjoy more freedom and abundance of food that the lowlands of Western Pangasinan could afford them.These two groups of people met near the shore of Lucap Bay around the year 1763 and decided to make a joint settlement of the area. This settlement, consider far removed from the influence of the hated Spaniards, came to be called Casboran or Baley and proved to be ideal for fishing and farming, being near the sea and bordered on three sides by fresh water rivers.The population soon increased attracting many free loving people from Eastern Pangasinan to Northern Zambales. With this increase in population, it became necessary that some type of government be formed. To resolved the situation, the two leaders, Suyang and Jose Perez, a close relative of Juan dela Cruz, entered into a gentlemen?s agreement to rule the prospering village alternately, with Perez being chosen as ?Captain? and Suyang as ?Tinyente Mayor?.At the expiration of the first term, the two men switched positions. It soon became evident that Suyang, now acting as ?Captain? was a more capable leader. Under his guidance, the village became a town. In 1768, a church and convent were constructed and a representative tribunal was formed.
Progress and expansion extended into all lines of endeavor, particularly commerce, transportation and education. Many enterprising young men came from neighboring towns and provinces to marry and live in Alaminos. Among the distinguished personages who came were of the ?Revolutionaries? in Pangasinan and Zambales.
The first Municipal President to be elected by the town people of Alaminos was Don Francisco Reinoso whose untiring efforts brought about the cessation of the nine towns of Northern Zambales to Pangasinan. After the term of Don Francisco Reinoso as President of the town, two political parties emerged to struggle for supremacy. Don Tranquilino Montemayor and the other by Don Pedro Reinoso led one party. About the year 1901, the Institution de San Jose was founded to further the cause of Catholicism and the education of the town?s children.
