Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard lies near to the boundary betwixt Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of around thirty seven thousand and a history extending back to the Roman era, when the ancient A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is attached to the nearby town of Linslade it is about midway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is situated near to the Chilterns and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's believed that there existed settlements in and near to what is now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, historical artefacts and coins stumbled on near by show proof of this fact. The old Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now called the A5, came through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe some two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at least known of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who introduced a market in around the 10th Century, and relics uncovered show that they were settling the vicinity almost certainly from the 6th Century. The village existing then is not discussed until 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 listed Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, encompassed a much wider area than merely the town alone, and covered the settlements of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wasn't put in prior to the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a variety of tenants over the generations, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
