The settlement as it was then isn't described till 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 listed Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, covered a way wider area compared to the town itself, and included the settlements of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge.

The Manors of Leighton were let to a great many tenants through the centuries, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
