Leighton Buzzard History: It's believed that there were settlements in and close to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, old artifacts and coins picked up near by offer proof of this fact. The olden Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through the close by towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable over two thousand in years past, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was they who developed the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and antiquities stumbled upon show that they were dwelling in the local area quite likely from the sixth century. The village existing at that time wasn't mentioned until 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book outlined Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, embodied a substantially wider area than simply the town itself, and integrated the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name appears to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wouldn't be put in until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it appropriate to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a great many tenants through the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
