Are you familiar with the DARRINGTON PRISON in Brazoria County, TX? The prison was named after the Darrington Plantation. The Brazoria County Historical Museum has been trying to find where the name Darrington came from. There was a John Darrington who is listed on tax rolls as early as 1837 in Texas and always represented by his agent (John S. Roberts). A John Darrington has a probate record in Brazoria Co filed in 1857. I've surmised John never lived in Texas but did purchase land and was probably the owner of Darrington Plantation. There is record of Robert Darrington, heir of John and Rebecca, selling land in 1886 in Brazoria County. I found John in the 1850 census of Clarke Co, AL, which lead me here. Would appreciate any help.
