Chautauqua County, New York

Chautauqua County is a county in the state of New York. The county was established in 1808 and later organized in 1811. The county’s name may be a contraction of a Seneca Indian word meaning “bag tied in the middle”. Jamestown is the largest city in the county, while Mayville is the county seat; the other city in the county is Dunkirk. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the county has a population of approximately 134,905 people and a total area of 1,500 square miles, of which 440 square miles is water and 1,060 square miles is land. Chautauqua County borders the following counties: Erie County to the northeast; Cattaraugus County to the east; Warren County, Pennsylvania, to the southeast; and Erie County, Pennsylvania, to the southwest.

The Chautauqua County Clerk is responsible for the recording of all land documents in the county, oversees the Department of Weights and Measures, serves as the clerk for the Supreme and County courts and County Historian, and heads the three Department of Motor Vehicle Bureau offices in the county.
