Paterson (Armachiana, Vol. 16, p.21) notes:
"Kildarton. Darton seems to be a personal name and the meaning would probably be 'The Church of Darton'. It may be that it derives from a Dartinne, Virgin, linked with Co. Wicklow, who being a contemporary of St. Patrick, may well have had a church dedicated to her at Armagh."
