Macario Lucban Veluz of Luisiana, Laguna, Philippines is the earliest known patriarch of the Veluz Clan.
Having fled his home town with his two brothers in the late 1800’s as an outlaw from the oppressive Spanish government, he and his siblings was said to have adopted this new surname which was befitting their new life (previous last name unknown). It is said that the brothers parted ways and settled in different towns in Camarines Sur and Camarines Norte. As his trade, he sold cows between Camarines Sur and Quezon. Eventually, he settled in a small coastal town Danawin in Quilbay, Camarines Sur — part of which is now known as a town of Del Gallego. He married Cipriana Collantes with whom he had several children: Simeon, Jacinto, Francisca, Cresenciano, Maria, Alejandro, Juana and Dolores.
