The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there were settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, historic relics and coinage stumbled on in close proximity give proof of this. The ancient Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now termed the A5, came through the nearby areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable around two thousand in years past, and the Romans would have at least known of the village as they passed it.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who used a market during the 10th Century, and relics found suggest that they were settling the neighbourhood most likely since the 6th Century. The village as it was isn't referred to till 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) recognized Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, embraced a much bigger area than just the town itself, and incorporated the hamlets of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wouldn't be added up until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from another "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a great many tenants through the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
