Origins of Danbury:
It is an interesting name of old English origin and is locational from an Old English pre 7th Century specific name “Dene” and “Dyrig”, a fort or a town, thus, the burg of Dene’s people. The earliest record of the placename is in the Domesday Book of 1086 and it shows as “Danengeberia”.
