In 1785, the South Carolina General Assembly established Darlington County, one of three subdivisions of the old Cheraw District. The origin of the name of the county and city of Darlington is uncertain; it is thought to have been so designated to honor a Colonel Darlington, a revolutionary war hero, or to have been named for a town in England.
