Found in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the small town of Leighton Buzzard lays very close to the boundary betwixt Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a story going back to the Roman period, at which time the Roman built Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there had been settlements in and near to what is now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, historical artifacts and coins picked up near by give proof of this fact. The historic Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now called the A5, went through the nearby settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe some 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who developed the market place during the tenth century, and antiquities stumbled on suggest that they were residing in the area most likely from the sixth century. The commune as it was then wasn't remarked upon until 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) outlined Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, encompassed a far wider area than merely the town by itself, and contained the hamlets of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wouldn't be added on up until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to many different tenants through the centuries, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
