Some of the forefathers of the residents in this is what is now called Barangay Putatan believed that the first inhabitant in this place were the primitive ITA who occupied the portion of the area nearby, a fishing ground that were semi-nomadic having no permanent shelter moving back and forth where they are towards Southwest areas like Batangas and Cavite depending on the abundance of food and means of livelihood (hunting and fishing) lasting for 2 to 3 years.

When the Spaniards colonized the Philippines, those who came in this particular place which has yet no name during the 18th century found that many trees abound which looked like the Santol tree but whose leaves are much bigger with flowers, blooming like rounded bunches of threads in rosy color in a seemingly small vine branches to become chain of fruits. The fruits are known to be poisonous, resembled like the American guava, has been called to be “Putat”, since then the Spaniards named the place as “PUTATAN” where the fruits blooms.

The prevailing means of livelihood during the Spanish era was agriculture at the hilly side of Putatan, as well as, fishing along the shores of Laguna Lake. Rice and corn that they were planted was subject to taxation by the Spaniards, where the portion of the harvest was brought to the “headquarters” where the warehouse is located.

Meanwhile, towards the end of the 19th Century during the Philippine Revolution against the Spaniards in 1898, two sons of Putatan were recruited by Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo as Katipuneros namely DIMAS Estole and HIPOLITO ESPORLAS who immediately participated in the battle of Pinaglabanan (San Juan). The entire Katipunero were killed including the leaders from Batangas except Dimas and Hipolito who survived because of the “Agimat” (Amulet) which Dimas said to be carrying. Thereafter, Dimas outfit was used in some more skirmishes and the story were told and retold by elders of Putatan.

Later, the Americans supplanted that of the Spaniards which brought about changes among in the inhabitants of Putatan particularly in their livelihood. Almost all owned karetela/Kalesa (Cart) towed by a horse was earning by transporting American soldiers to Pasay as their passengers. The farmers also stopped their planting of rice, corn and other crops as they were ordered to shift to sugar cane plantation.

Eventually, sugar industry became the new means of livelihood with the central facilities located at the area now called “Country Homes” of the Espeleta’s and Summitville of Fresnedi’s (the ancestors of Muntinlupa City Mayor Jaime R. Fresnedi). And incidentally, this new lifestyle both manifested by the people’s sense of industry and adaptability found time for rest and recreation such as movie house operated by a certain “UWELE”, an American owning a projector and which was located at the place of a certain WEIDMAN in an area of Putatan
