Patty Perry - Warrick County Clerk
The term "clerk" is derived from the LATIN WORD "CLERICUS" (CLERGYMAN). Its application to a particular officer of a court has its origin in the historical fact that in the early days of England, both before and after the Norman conquest, the subordinate officers of courts of justice as well as the judges, were chosen among the clergy. Almost all forms of learning were confined to this class. In England "the clerk of the peace," a county officer appointed by the custos rotulorum (keeper of the rolls) of the county was clerk of the court of general sessions of the peace. In the various states of this country the creation of the office of the clerk of the court is a matter of constitutional or statutory provision. In Indiana the State Constitution creates the office of "Clerk of the circuit Court" as the official name of the officer who keeps the records of courts of the counties. The Clerk is custodian of its record and seal, issues process, accepts filings of commencement of actions in litigation, enters judgments and orders of the court, receives money in his official capacity, makes certified copies of record, issues many miscellaneous licenses and licenses to practice various professions and must keep a record of all wills and matters of trust in probate proceeds.
