Most of the later place names are derived either from the Darlington family name, being named either after people with that family name, or are derived from the place name directly, being named after the original village of Darlington directly.
Darlington is a market town and the major settlement in the Borough of Darlington in the ceremonial county of County Durham in the North East of England. Historically part of County Durham, the town is now a separate unitary Borough and is part of the Tees Valley economic area. The town lies on the small River Skerne, a tributary of the River Tees, not far from the main river. It is the main population centre in the borough, with a population of 106,000 as of 2011. The town owes much of its development to the influence of local Quaker families during the Victorian era, and it is famous as the terminus of the world's first passenger railway.The railway station is an important stop on the East Coast Main Line.
