Leighton Buzzard History: It is believed that there were settlements in and close to what's now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, old artifacts and coins stumbled on nearby give proof of this. The old Watling Street (built by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through the close by towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe around two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was they who developed the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and artifacts found suggest that they were settling the vicinity quite possibly from the sixth century. The settlement existing at that time is not listed till 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book specified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, embraced a much greater area than simply the town by itself, and consisted of the hamlets of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name could quite possibly have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part did not get added on before the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to various tenants over the eras, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
