The age old Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, went through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe over 2,000 in years past, and the Romans would have at least known of the village at this time.

The settlement as it was is not referred to until 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 listed Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embodied a way wider area than merely the town itself, and consisted of the hamlets of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name may perhaps have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not added on up until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a variety of tenants over the years, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
