Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's thought that there existed settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, age-old relics and coinage found in close proximity show evidence of this fact. The ancient Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the close by areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable about 2,000 years ago, and the Romans will have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was they who created a market during the 10th Century, and artefacts found show that they were inhabiting the local area probably since the 6th Century. The village existing then was not reported until 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 talked about Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, covered a much wider area than only the town alone, and covered the hamlets of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name could quite possibly have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not to be inserted before the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a great many tenants through the centuries, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
