Leighton Buzzard History: It's felt that there had been settlements in and near to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, historic artifacts and coinage uncovered nearby offer proof of this. The age old Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the close by towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe around about two thousand in years past, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who created the market place sometime in the tenth century, and artifacts found denote that they were living in the vicinity undoubtedly since the sixth century. The village as it was was not mentioned until 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 mentioned Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, embodied a significantly wider area than just the town alone, and consisted of the settlements of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion was not to be included prior to the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from another "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to many different tenants over the centuries, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
