Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's considered that there were settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, ancient artifacts and coinage stumbled on near by offer proof of this. The historic Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now named the A5, cut through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable around about two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was they who were using the market place during the tenth century, and antiquities uncovered suggest that they were residing in the local area undoubtedly from the sixth century. The settlement existing then wasn't remarked upon until 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book named Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, encompassed a significantly greater area than merely the town itself, and incorporated the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not added on till the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to various tenants through the generations, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
