Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is thought that there existed settlements in and near to what is now named Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, early artefacts and coinage unearthed nearby offer proof of this. The longstanding Watling Street (built by the Romans), now termed the A5, cut through the neighbouring settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 years back, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the village at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was they who used the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and artifacts stumbled on show that they were inhabiting the local area undoubtedly from the 6th Century. The village as it was then isn't observed until 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) recognized Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, covered a lot wider area than simply the town itself, and contained the settlements of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part did not get applied prior to the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from another "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to several tenants through the ages, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
