Kingshaugh House was originally a hunting lodge built to serve the eastern Le Clay division of Sherwood Forest. It was fortified with earthworks in a rebellion of 1196 against King John. A new lodge was built in 1210–11 at a cost of £550 but was abandoned after 1217. The present Kingshaugh House is a late 17th-century farmhouse that appears to incorporate some masonry from the lodge.
Darlton is the birthplace of Charles Read (1604–1669), who became a wealthy shipper in Kingston upon Hull. In 1667 Read founded a grammar school and a set of almshouses at Drax in Yorkshire. When Read died, his will founded further grammar schools at Tuxford in Nottinghamshire and Corby Glen in Lincolnshire.
