The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's felt that there had been settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, historic artifacts and coins stumbled upon nearby show evidence of this fact. The age-old Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, ran through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly 2,000 years ago, and the Romans would have at least known of the village during those times.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who introduced the market place in about the 10th Century, and relics found mean that they were settling the area almost certainly from the sixth century. The commune as such was not remarked upon till 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book reported Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, embraced a considerably wider area than only the town by itself, and included the settlements of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wouldn't be applied before the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to several tenants over the centuries, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
