Williamson County (sometimes abbreviated as "Wilco" or "wilson") is a county in the U.S. state of Texas. As of the 2010 census, the population was 422,679. Between 2000 and 2010, the county grew by 69.1%. Its county seat is Georgetown. The county is named for Robert McAlpin Williamson (1804?–1859), a community leader and veteran of the Battle of San Jacinto.
