There is speculation, according to local historians, that the name "Darby" is a mispronunciation of the word "Derby" derived from the English town of Derby, in the county of Derbyshire. One explanation states that the Darby Creek closely resembled the English River Derwent, the main body of water that flows through Derby. British immigrants named the town in the new world thus. Birthplace of legendary comedian and actor, W.C. Fields, born in 1880 at the Buttonwood Hotel, then located at 9th and Main Streets. Darby Borough is a distinct municipality from the similarly-named, nearby municipality of Darby Township.
