Leighton Buzzard History: It's believed that there were settlements in and close to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, historical relics and coinage discovered near by offer proof of this. The ancient Watling Street (made by the Romans), now named the A5, came through the neighbouring towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable about two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The commune existing then was not cited until 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) mentioned Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, encompassed a substantially larger area than merely the town alone, and included the settlements of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wouldn't be put in prior to the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from another "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a variety of tenants through the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
