The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there had been settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, historical relics and coins picked up in close proximity offer evidence of this. The longstanding Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now termed the A5, came through the close by settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable about 2,000 years ago, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the village as they passed it.

The Romans were eventually followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who set up the market place during the 10th Century, and artefacts stumbled upon show that they were dwelling in the region most probably from the sixth century. The village as such is not observed till 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 listed Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, comprised a way greater area compared to the town alone, and comprised the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece did not get applied before the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a variety of tenants over the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
