About:
The word Taytay has many origins. It is believed that the name came from words like tayutay, hintay-hintay, and itay-itay which arose when the village or barangay was doing trade with Chinese traders as did other lake towns around Laguna de Bay.  Chinese sailing vessels would dock at Manila Bay to conduct trade with the thriving barangays of Maynilad and Tondo and go up the Pasig River to do more barter trade with lakeshore towns looping Laguna de Bay.

Historical Background:
Known as the "Woodworks and Garments Capital of the Philippines", the history of the Municipality of Taytay dates back to pre-Spanish times when this traditional community was ruled by a native chieftain and his wife, presumably as a distinct Pre-Hispanic barangay composed of 30 to 100 families. 

On June 11, 1901, the province of Rizal was officially and legally created by virtue of an Act No. 137 by the First Philippine Commission, which at the time was acting as the unicameral legislative body in the island of Luzon.

The new province was composed of 26 municipalities, fourteen from the old Province of Manila (Las Piñas, Malabon, Makati, Parañaque, Mandaluyong, San Juan, Navotas, Muntinlupa, Taguig, Pateros, Pasig, Marikina, San Mateo, and Montalban); and 12 from the Politico-Militar District of Morong, (Angono, Baras, Binangonan, Cainta, Antipolo, Cardona, Jalajala, Morong, Pililla, Tanay, Taytay and Teresa). The seat of the provincial government was Pasig.

On November 7, 1975, by virtue of Presidential Decree No. 824, the 12 towns of Las Piñas, Parañaque, Muntinlupa, Taguig, Pateros, Makati, Mandaluyong, San Juan, Malabon, Navotas, Pasig and Marikina were incorporated into the newly formed Metro Manila Area thereby leaving the remaining 14 towns of San Mateo, Montalban, Cainta, Taytay, Angono, Antipolo, Binangonan, Teresa, Morong, Cardona, Tanay, Baras, Pililla and Jalajala to the Province of Rizal.
