The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's felt that there were settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, old artefacts and coins discovered in the area give evidence of this. The historic Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now known as the A5, came through the neighbouring settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe over two thousand years ago, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the village as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was they who used the market place sometime in the tenth century, and artifacts picked up suggest that they were settling the neighbourhood in all likelihood from the 6th Century. The village as such wasn't reported till 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) recognized Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, incorporated a considerably bigger area than just the town by itself, and consisted of 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 inserted up until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a variety of tenants through the ages, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
