Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's felt that there were settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, old artifacts and coinage stumbled upon near by show evidence of this. The old Watling Street (established by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the nearby settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable about 2,000 in years past, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the village during those times.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who developed a market during the 10th Century, and artifacts uncovered suggest that they were inhabiting the area undoubtedly since the sixth century. The settlement as it was then isn't cited till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) recognized Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, comprised a way larger area than only the town by itself, and integrated the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name seems to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not put in prior to the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to many different tenants over the generations, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
