    It sounds like they're simply confirming that deposee's signature was witnessed by a Notary Public. (I wonder if New York lawyers get paid by the word.... )

    Thank you for your response.
    That was exactly what I believed to be at first. However, I have checked similar clauses in other US states, and it turns out that this clause refers to to the very Notary and confirms his rights over the said territory their legality.
