Leighton Buzzard History: It is believed that there existed settlements in and near to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, historical artifacts and coins picked up near by give proof of this. The early Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the neighbouring areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe about 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans would have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was them who set up the market place during the tenth century, and antiquities uncovered show that they were residing in the vicinity in all likelihood from the sixth century. The commune as it was then is not described until 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 described Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, encompassed a significantly larger area compared to the town alone, and covered the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not to be put in until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a great many tenants over the centuries, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
