The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's believed that there existed settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, early artefacts and coinage stumbled on nearby offer evidence of this. The early Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now known as the A5, came through the nearby towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable some 2,000 in years past, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the village at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using a market during the 10th Century, and artefacts unearthed suggest that they were settling the local area quite possibly from the sixth century. The village as it was then is not remarked upon till 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 mentioned Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, covered a much larger area than simply the town alone, and consisted of the settlements of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section did not get put on before the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to many different tenants through the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
