Found in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the market town of Leighton Buzzard is very close to the county border between Beds and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of about thirty seven thousand and a story harping back to Roman times, at which time the historical A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's believed that there were settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, historical artefacts and coinage unearthed near by give proof of this fact. The age-old Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable some 2,000 in years past, and the Romans would have at the very least known of the village as they passed it.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who used the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts found suggest that they were settling the region perhaps from the sixth century. The settlement existing at that time was not cited till 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) mentioned Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, incorporated a considerably wider area than just the town by itself, and included the settlements of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wasn't applied until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to an assortment of tenants over the generations, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
