Leighton Buzzard History: It's considered that there had been settlements in and near to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, historic relics and coinage discovered in the area show evidence of this fact. The olden Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the close by settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable around about 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans will have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was they who set up a market in around the 10th Century, and artifacts found show that they were inhabiting the local area in all likelihood since the sixth century. The commune as it was wasn't referred to till 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) outlined Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, encompassed a significantly greater area than simply the town alone, and contained the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wasn't appended before the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to many different tenants over the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
