Leighton Buzzard History: It is thought that there existed settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, age-old artefacts and coinage stumbled on in the area offer proof of this. The age old Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the neighbouring areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable some 2,000 years back, and the Romans will have at the very least known of the village as they passed it.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who were using the market place in around the 10th Century, and artefacts discovered suggest that they were inhabiting the region undoubtedly from the 6th Century. The village as such is not documented until 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 reported Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, encompassed a way wider area than merely the town itself, and incorporated the hamlets of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component did not get appended before the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a number of tenants through the generations, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
