Going back through time, through a distinguished lineage, a public notary is in reality a public office that originated in ancient Rome. Those civilizations (like ours) needed impartial recorders of facts that included public proceedings, state papers, legal forms, and to register the decrees of judges.
In England, the profession came in later in the 13th and 14th centuries. Many notaries in those days were members of the clergy. When they stopped participating, secular folks and business people started assuming the post working like the current common law notary function.
Private transactions and events were recorded along with documents of judicial importance. In fact, anytime an officially authenticated record was needed, you could find a notary.
Officially, a state government appointee, a notary public serves the public as an impartial witness when important documents are signed. A notary public’s job is to verify that the person named on the document is indeed the person signing the document.
