Based in the county of Beds in the East of England, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard lays near the county boundary betwixt Beds and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of around thirty seven thousand and a history harping back to the Roman period, when the early Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is considered that there were settlements in and near to what's now named Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, age-old artefacts and coins discovered nearby show evidence of this fact. The ancient Watling Street (made by the Romans), now termed the A5, cut through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 years back, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the village at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was Saxons who created a market during the tenth century, and relics stumbled upon show that they were residing in the neighbourhood undoubtedly since the sixth century. The settlement existing then was not documented until 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 reported Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, incorporated a substantially greater area than only the town by itself, and comprised the settlements of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not put on up until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a great many tenants over the centuries, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
