Bansud, officially the Municipality of Bansud, is located at the south of Gloria and north of Bongabong and is about   90   kilometres    (56    mi)  from Calapan.

Bansud was formerly a barrio of Bongabong. It became a separate municipality on July 4, 1959 by virtue of Republic Act No. 2514. The name of the town is said to be derived from a legend. The legend says that long ago the Mangyans, the aborigines of the Mindoro settled in the lands near the mouth of Bansud River, which they called “Basud” which means Delta.

The delta provided fertile soil for thepeople; hence they lived there peacefully and productively until the time that settlers from the province of Marinduque and Visayan Islands moved in. In many years that followed, the word “Basud” was eventually changed to Bansud. Agriculture still provides the main industry with rice, banana, and coconut products. Citrus products like calamansi, are also abundant.
