Origins of Darlington name
Posted by: Glenn Darlington (ID *****5872) Date: October 06, 2008 at 01:44:28

I've been trying to find out where the name 'Darlington' originated. From information on the internet I've had a variety of possibilities. Can anyone help?
I've read where it's been referred to as a derivative of Darnton, Darnton I, and Derlington, and possibly Deornoth, which possibly is the earliest and probably Saxon or Anglen which would place the name in the area of the city Darlington in the UK from around 600 AD to 1000 AD.
If anyone has any information confirming this or any firmer understanding of the name pease let me know.
Many thanks, Glen Darlington
