The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there had been settlements in and near to what is now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, early artifacts and coins unearthed in close proximity offer evidence of this fact. The age old Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly two thousand in years past, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The village as it was isn't listed until 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book mentioned Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, embodied a substantially bigger area than just the town itself, and covered the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wouldn't be put in until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to numerous tenants over the eras, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
