Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is thought that there were settlements in and close to what's now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, ancient artefacts and coins stumbled on in close proximity give proof of this. The historical Watling Street (established by the Romans), now known as the A5, cut through the nearby towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly 2,000 in years past, and the Romans will have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The commune existing then isn't listed till 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 mentioned Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, embodied a lot larger area than simply the town itself, and consisted of the settlements of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not put on before the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to an assortment of tenants over the ages, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
