Derby is a city and unitary authority in the East Midlands region of England. It lies upon the banks of the River Derwent and is located in the south of the ceremonial county of Derbyshire. In the 2001 census, the population of the city was 233,700, whilst that of the Derby Urban Area was 229,407. According to the 2001 census, Derby was at that time the 18th largest settlement in England, measured by urban area. The city has Roman, Saxon and Viking origins. The Roman camp of ‘Derventio’ was probably at Little Chester/Chester Green. The site of the old Roman fort is at Chester Green. Later the town was one of the ‘Five Boroughs’ (fortified towns) of the Danelaw. The popular belief is that the name ‘Derby’ is a corruption of the Danish and Gaelic Djúra-bý, recorded in Anglo-Saxon as Deoraby “Village of the Deer”. This popular belief is asserted by Tim Lambert who states, “The name Derby is derived from the Danish words deor by meaning deer settlement” without reference or proof. However some assert that it is a corruption of the original Roman name ‘Derventio’. The proven origin of the name “Derby” would seem to be elusive.
