Darrington Early Origins



The surname Darrington was first found in the West Riding of Yorkshire, at Darrington, a parish, in the union of Preston, Upper division of the wapentake of Osgoldcross. The parish dates back to the Domesday Book of 1086 when it was first listed as Darni(n)tone. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
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." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Mills, A.D., Dictionary of English Place-Names. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1991. Print. (ISBN 0-19-869156-4)
Hence, conjecturally, the surname is descended from the tenant of the lands of Darrington, Ilbert de Lacey, who was recorded in the Domesday Book census of 1086.
