Harris County, Texas Information
Harris County in Texas lies in the southeastern portion of the state near Galveston Bay. The population as of the 2010 census was 4,092,459 and it is the most populous county in the state of Texas and the third most populous county in the country. Houston is the county seat, the largest city in the state, and the fourth largest city in the United States. The county was founded in 1836 and named for the gentleman who founded both towns of Harrisburg and Buffalo Bayou, John Richardson Harris.
Historically, human remains date back to about 4,000 BC. French traders were known to have passed through the area during the 18th century. Spanish inhabitants tried to establish a fort in the area but were unsuccessful. The first recorded European settlers in Harris County arrived in 1822. Their schooner sailed into Galveston Bay and ran aground on the Red Fish Bar. Some of those passengers traveled further up the bay system, but it is not known whether they settled Buffalo Bayou or the San Jacinto River. One of these passengers, a Mr. Ryder, settled at what is now known as Morgan’s Point, Texas. Also, in 1822, John Liams settled his family at Cedar Point after sailing from Berwick’s Bay, Louisiana. Dr. Johnson Hunter arrived just after Liams. He also wrecked his boat near Galveston, settled at Morgan’s Point and was a grantee of land there. Nathaniel Lynch settled in the area and operated a ferry. In 1824, the land empresario, Stephen F. Austin convened at the house of William Scott for conveying titles for Mexican headrights. He was joined by the land commissioner, Baron von Bastrop, and Austin’s secretary, Samuel May Williams. About thirty families gained legal titles to land in what would later be known as Harris County. A few immigrants settled on Buffalo Bayou in these early years, including Moses Callahan, Ezekial Thomas, and the Vince brothers. Nicolas Clopper arrived in the Galveston Bay area from Ohio in the 1820s. He attempted to develop Buffalo Bayou as a trading conduit for the Brazos River valley. He acquired land at Morgan’s Point in 1826. John Richardson Harris (1790–1829), for whom the county was later named, arrived in 1824. Harris had moved his family to Sainte Genevieve, Missouri Territory, where they had been residing until the early 1820s. Harris was granted a league of land (about 4,428 acres) at Buffalo Bayou. He platted the town of Harrisburg in 1826, while he established a trading post and a grist mill there. He ran boats transporting goods between New Orleans and Harrisburg until his death in the fall of 1829.
The total area of the county is 1,703 square miles of land, plus 74 square miles of water. Adjacent counties are:

Great service very fast and they do not bend you over a barrel. I’ve tried other bail bonding companies and those experiences showed me to always stick with Badabing. I hope never need a bonding company again, but if I or anyone I know ever need out of jail there’s only one place to call. Badabing for life!
Jack is very informative and tells you how it is. He knows it all. BEST bail bond I’ve been to. Very courteous, fast, and educated . Always is quick to answer the phone, pull up your information, and tells you the best advice.
Great experience, Jack was knowledgeable and in wealth of experience made for a straight forward and easy process. I also had the good fortune to have a personal narration of one of his children’s books which I will be gifting my nieces and nephews. Thank you!
