The word “Prothonotary” is a Latin word meaning “First Notary”; dating back to Ecclesiastical Law as being the highest administrator of the Court of Rome and the First Notary. When a case was ready for trial, the Prothonotary would notify the Judges when to appear in Court to try the case. Thus today’s meaning of Prothonotary is “first notary of the Court.”
The Prothonotary, Clerk of Courts and Orphans’ Court Office is located on the first floor of the Courthouse.
