Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is believed that there existed settlements in and near to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, historical relics and coins uncovered in close proximity give proof of this fact. The age old Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the nearby towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly 2,000 years back, and the Romans will have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was Saxons who used a market during the tenth century, and antiquities stumbled on suggest that they were inhabiting the neighbourhood quite possibly since the sixth century. The settlement as it was was not remarked upon till 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) mentioned Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, comprised a significantly larger area than just the town itself, and covered the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion was not to be added on until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it beneficial to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to various tenants through the ages, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
