If you observe, there are no English, Tagalog, Bisaya, or Ilonggo words mixed in the Chabacano used during this time period.You do see English translations from time to time though notably on deep Chabacano words which is probably for the benefit of the readers.You even see that the word sabe was conjugated to se. A semblance of Spanish grammar can also be seen in the usage of sus (dos hijos) instead of just su.
Here now is a translation made by my friend to English:
In my entire life, I have never heard any news, neither verbal nor written, about the Atilano family of Zamboanga. A branch of this family is living simply and quietly in Tetuan. Despite their prominence and renown, no one has been able to give them the proper recognition with regard to their origins and place in the history of Zamboanga. The family prefers to remain quiet and leave it to other people to offer the praises that they deserve.
Heading this family is Vinnie Atilano, who in his youth became the Mayor of Zamboanga, but has always remained humble. Most Zamboangueños are unaware of the lineage and nature of the Atilano family. And this is why it's time to let (this family) be known and to express some words of gratitude and acknowledgement to them.
The patriarch of the family was Timuay Saragan, the Subano supreme leader, who at that time lived up in Pasonanca in the mid-1500s and 1600s. In the year 1610, his daughter, Princess Nayag, married Salingaya Bungsu, the Sultan of Jolo, who later brought her to Jolo. Their two sons, Macombong and Tongab, in their youthful twenties and along with their families and followers, returned to take possession of the Zamboanga territory as rightful heirs of their Subano grandfather. They all converted to Christianity. Macombong and Tongab became representatives and heirs of the two leading royal families in the territories of Zamboanga and Jolo. Macombong adopted the name "Felipe" while Tongab took the name "Santiago."The two brothers were treated well by the Spanish government for fostering peace in the Zamboanga settlement. Alonso, son of Macombong, was named town administrator in 1663 when the Spaniards left Zamboanga. Dominga, granddaughter of Alonso, married Inocencio Atilano, who was the Spanish commander of the fort. Through this union, the Spaniards showed that they did not discriminate against the natives - to think that a high-ranking Spanish official wanted to legally marry a Subano Zamboangueña. This matrimony between Dominga and Inocencio started the first Atilano family in Zamboanga and produced 5 children, namely, Gregoria, Manuel, Maria, Santiago and Felizarda. These five children multiplied in their unions with other families by the names of Elago, Bucoy, Alfaro, Saavedra, Tarroza, Mortera, Montenegro, among others. The Atilano family was prominent and loved and was treated with great respect by the Spanish government for their services, cooperation, loyalty and obedience. This was also why each member of the family showed clear evidence of the mixture of native and Spanish blood.
When Vinnie became Mayor, I told him to also try using (for himself the salutation) "Your Royal Highness, the Crown Prince of the Peninsular Kingdom of Zamboanga." He did not reply at all. I do not know what he thought of it. Greetings to the Atilano Family!
