The historic Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now identified as the A5, cut through the nearby areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable over two thousand in years past, and the Romans would have at least known of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, covered a way greater area compared to the town alone, and covered the settlements of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wouldn't be applied before the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to numerous tenants through the generations, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
