The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there had been settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, ancient relics and coinage stumbled upon in close proximity show evidence of this. The early Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now known as the A5, came through the close by towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe about two thousand years back, and the Romans will have at least known of the village as they passed it.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who were using a market sometime in the tenth century, and artifacts discovered suggest that they were settling the area in all probability since the 6th Century. The village as it was then was not mentioned till 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book recognised Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, covered a considerably bigger area than only the town itself, and incorporated the settlements of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wasn't included prior to the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a variety of tenants through the generations, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
