Leighton Buzzard History: It is thought that there were settlements in and close to what's now called Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, age-old relics and coins stumbled on in close proximity show evidence of this fact. The ancient Watling Street (established by the Romans), now termed the A5, went through the close by towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe some 2,000 in years past, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who introduced the market place sometime in the tenth century, and antiquities discovered show that they were inhabiting the vicinity most likely from the 6th Century. The commune existing then wasn't mentioned until 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book recognised Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, covered a significantly wider area than merely the town alone, and integrated the settlements of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wasn't inserted prior to the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to an assortment of tenants over the ages, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
