The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's considered that there were settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, historical artifacts and coins uncovered in the area offer proof of this. The historic Watling Street (established by the Romans), now identified as the A5, ran through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe about 2,000 years back, and the Romans will have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was Saxons who developed the market place during the 10th Century, and artifacts found show that they were staying in the local area possibly from the 6th Century. The village as such was not reported till 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book named Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, comprised a considerably greater area than only the town by itself, and incorporated the settlements of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element did not get added prior to the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from another "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to an assortment of tenants over the centuries, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
