The present-day Municipality of Tingloy was like a volleyball being tossed from one town to the other during the American colonial era. In 1918, the then-barrio of Tingloy along with a few others presently associated with the modern-day town was taken from Bauan and became part of the newly created town of Mabini.

However, in 1923, the barrio along with others was removed from Mabini and returned to Bauan. The return was ordered by the Governor General Leonard Wood. The text of his executive order1 is contained below:
OFFICE OF THE GOVERNOR-GENERAL OF THE
PHILIPPINE ISLANDS

Manila, December 18, 1922.

No. 69.

Pursuant to the provisions of section sixty-eight of the Administrative Code, the barrios of Tingloy, Maricaban, Talahib, Gamao, Pisa, and Papaya, municipality of Mabini, Province of Batangas, are hereby transferred to the municipality of Bauan, same province.
