Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the market town of Leighton Buzzard is near the county boundary in between Beds and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of around 37,000 and a story going back to Roman days, at which time the early Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjacent town of Linslade it is approximately mid-way between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it lays near to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's felt that there had been settlements in and near to what is now named Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, historic artifacts and coinage unearthed near by give proof of this. The old Watling Street (made by the Romans), now identified as the A5, ran through the neighbouring settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe over 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans would have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Romans were consequently followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who used a market sometime in the tenth century, and artifacts discovered show that they were residing in the locale more than likely from the 6th Century. The settlement existing then is not documented till 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book specified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, embraced a substantially larger area than only the town alone, and incorporated the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wouldn't be put in before the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln found it crucial to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a number of tenants over the generations, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
