Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's considered that there had been settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, age-old relics and coins stumbled on near by show proof of this. The historical Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe some 2,000 years ago, and the Romans will have at least known of the village at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was they who developed a market during the tenth century, and relics stumbled upon suggest that they were settling the area more than likely since the sixth century. The village as such isn't documented until 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book described Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, encompassed a significantly larger area than just the town alone, and integrated the settlements of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name might have been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wasn't included before the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from another "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a variety of tenants through the generations, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
