Most authorities trace the name 'Darwen' to the [[Brythonic languages|Brythonic]] ''derw'' "oak", originally applied to the [[River Darwen|river]]; an etymology supported an older form of the name, ''Derewent'' (1208).<ref name="Mills"/> It has also been claimed that the name Darwen stems from "Dwrgwyn", from the [[Old Welsh]] (also a Brythonic language) ''dwr'' or "water" and ''gwyn'' Brythonic for "white" or "clear". Thus the name may mean "clear water".

The area around Darwen has been inhabited since the early [[Bronze Age]], and the remains of a [[Tumulus|barrow]] from approximately 2000 BC have been partially restored at the Ashleigh Barrow<ref>{{cite web |url=http://www.themodernantiquarian.com/site/3014 |title=Ashleigh Barrow |publisher=The Modern Antiquarian |accessdate=15 November 2009}}</ref> in Whitehall. Artefacts including a bronze dagger and urns containing human ashes were found, and a small number of these finds are now on display at Darwen Library Theatre. The [[Roman Britain|Romans]] once had a force in Lancashire, and a [[Roman roads in Britain|Roman road]] is visible on the [[Ordnance Survey]] map of the area. Mediaeval Darwen was tiny; little or nothing survives. One of the earliest remaining buildings is a farmhouse at Bury Fold, dated 1675.<ref>{{Cite web |url=http://www.heritagegateway.org.uk/Gateway/Results_Single.aspx?uid=1072437&resourceID=5 |title=Bury Fold |publisher=Heritage Gateway |accessdate=8 May 2011}}</ref> Whitehall Cottage is thought to be the oldest house in the town, and was mostly built in the 17th and 18th centuries but contains a chimney piece dated 1557.<ref>{{Cite web |url=http://www.lancashire.gov.uk/environment/documents/historictowns/DarwenComplete_LowRes.pdf |title=Darwen: Historic Town Assessment Report |work=Lancashire Historic Town Survey Programme |publisher=Lancashire County Council |date=May 2005}}</ref><ref>{{Cite web |url=http://www.heritagegateway.org.uk/Gateway/Results_Single.aspx?uid=1072410&resourceID=5 |title=Gable End Cottage, Whitehall, Whitehall Cottages |publisher=Heritage Gateway |accessdate=8 May 2011}}</ref>
