The birth of Paniqui traces back to1712 when the provincial government of Pangasinan sent a group of men south of Bayambang, Pangasinan for the expansion of the Christian Faith. The pioneering group was led by two brothers, Raymundo and Manuel Paragas of Dagupan and established the Local Government in a sitio called “manggang marikit” (mango of an unmarried woman) now a part of Guimba, Nueva Ecija.
Surprisingly in this sitio, they saw an extraordinary number of flying mammals called “pampaniki” by Ilocanos. This is where the name Paniqui was derived from.
