Houston Notary Service Terms:

A Notary Public is a public servant with statewide jurisdiction - authorized to take acknowledgments, protest instruments permitted by law to be protested, administer oaths, take depositions, and certify copies of documents not recordable in the public records.

As an officer of the State of Texas, the primary duty of a Notary Public is to show a disinterested party (the Notary Public) has admonished the signer of an instrument as to the importance of such document, and the signer of such document has declared that his/her identity, his/her signature and his/her reasons for signing such instrument are genuine.  The signature and seal of a Notary Public do not prove these facts conclusively, but do provide prima facie proof of them, and allow persons in trade and commerce to rely upon the truth and veracity of the Notary Public as a third party who has no personal interest in the transaction.

Origin and History of Notaries: The present-day office of the notary public is the oldest surviving branch of the legal profession.  The function of the notary can actually be traced back to pre-Biblical times, when ancient Egyptians and Greeks employed individuals to perform notarial-like duties. 
In ancient Rome, public officials called scribes were responsible for the writing and recording of facts or speeches, as well as the transcribing of documents.  Notaries continued to remain prominent in Europe throughout history.   In the 13th and 14th centuries, notaries were often clergyman appointed by representatives of the Pope. 


A formal declaration before an authorized official (a Notary Public) by a person signing an instrument that such execution is his/her free act and deed.  The term also refers to the notary's certificate on the document indicating that it was so acknowledged.
