Leighton Buzzard History: It is thought that there had been settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, ancient artefacts and coinage found in the area show evidence of this fact. The early Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now identified as the A5, ran through the neighbouring towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly 2,000 years back, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who were using a market sometime in the 10th Century, and antiquities found show that they were living in the vicinity more than likely since the sixth century. The settlement as it was then is not documented until 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book outlined Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, encompassed a substantially bigger area than only the town by itself, and integrated the hamlets of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wasn't inserted prior to the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to an assortment of tenants through the centuries, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
