Bustos was a part of the town of Baliuag as its barrio during the Spanish Period. The town was separated from Baliuag by a tragic incident when around 1860, a rainy Sunday, a group of natives from Bustos with babies in their arms were on their way to the church for baptismal when they drowned when the raft or planceta they were riding capsized while crossing the wild river of Angat due to the strong water current. This fateful event led the people of Bustos to request and build their own parish church to be able to avoid crossing the wild river for community safety. The people chose Holy Child Jesus (Sto. Niño) as their patron saint in honor of those infants that died in the river.
