Our Mission

Welcome from County Clerk Barbara Simpson and the staff of the Coryell County Clerk's Office. Our Mission is to provide the citizens of Coryell County and all of those who utilize this office with a friendly, efficient and professional staff. We provide eight public workstations on the lower floor of the County Clerk's Office.

The office of County Clerk has been in existence in Texas since 1836 and was established by Section 20, Article 5 of the Texas Constitution which states, "There shall be elected for each county, by the qualified voters, a County Clerk, who shall hold his office for four years, who shall be clerk of the County and Commissioners' Court and recorder of the county, whose duties, perquisities and fees of office shall be prescribed by the Legislature."

The County Clerk is the Registrar for Deed Records, Liens and Abstracts, Official Bonds and Oaths, occupational Bonds, Plats, Military Discharge Records, and other Miscellaneous records. Marriage License are purchased from the Clerk and filed and recorded with the clerk after the marriage ceremony. Birth and Death records are recorded with the clerk with the first records dating back to 1903.

The County Clerk serves as the clerk of the Commissioners' Court and is responsible for taking minutes and recording all proceedings in that court. All proceedings in the County Court and the County Court at Law, including Family Law matters to be heard in the County Court at Law are filed with the County Clerk's Office. Fines and fees for County Court and County Court at Law are paid in the County Clerk's Office.
