ⓘ Danby, Vermont

According to the Vermont Encyclopedia, Danby was most likely named for Thomas Osborne, Earl of Danby and Duke of Leeds. However, Henry Gannett in 1905 attributed the towns name to Danby, North Yorkshire, in England. Historian Willard Sterne Randall, in his biography of Ethan Allen, gives yet another name origin: that Allen named Danby "after the French Naval commander whose fleet invaded New Englands waters in the French and Indian War."
