Jefferson County was one of the original twenty-three counties of Texas, created on 17 March 1836 and organized in 1837 from an Old Mexican Municipality. County seat: Jefferson (1837-1838); Beaumont (1838- present). The Cypress Bayou Settlement in the Mexican municipality of Liberty was the nucleus from which the present area of Jefferson County grew.
