The settlement as it was then is not reported till 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book recognised Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, comprised a lot greater area compared to the town itself, and contained the hamlets of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion was not added till the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to an assortment of tenants through the eras, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
