The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's felt that there existed settlements in and close to what's now called Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, historical artifacts and coinage stumbled upon nearby give proof of this fact. The age old Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 in years past, and the Romans would have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Romans were later followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using the market place in about the tenth century, and relics unearthed suggest that they were inhabiting the area perhaps since the sixth century. The village existing then wasn't described until 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) reported Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, covered a much greater area than only the town by itself, and consisted of the settlements of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not put in prior to the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it essential to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a number of tenants over the ages, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
