Williams, Dr Ann. And G.H. Martin, Eds., Domesday Book A Complete Translation. London: Penguin, 1992. Print. (ISBN 0-141-00523-8) At that time, Darrington held a church and a mill. Literally the place name probably meant "estate associated with a man called Deornoth," from the Old English personal name + "-ing" + "tun." CITATION[CLOSE]
