Leighton Buzzard History: It is felt that there were settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, old artifacts and coins unearthed in close proximity offer evidence of this fact. The age-old Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now named the A5, ran through the close by settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable some 2,000 in years past, and the Romans will have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who created the market place during the tenth century, and relics found show that they were residing in the neighbourhood perhaps since the 6th Century. The commune as such isn't listed till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 identified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embraced a much greater area than merely the town itself, and covered the settlements of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part did not get appended before the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to numerous tenants over the generations, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
