The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, covered a lot bigger area compared to the town itself, and incorporated the settlements of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town may very well have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not included prior to the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a variety of tenants over the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
