According to the below book the first recorded Darlington was the Arch Bishop of Dublin, John de Darlington 1252.
Was Darlington the name of a place? Even a castle or a manor or tiny village, could have been used.

They go on the say that they think it is a Saxon name. The next written account is a Darlington in London in 1484. They think the London Darlingtons came from the Chester area.
