The historical Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through neighbouring Dunstable and Hockliffe around 2,000 years back, and the Romans should have at least known of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The village as such isn't listed until 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 described Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, embraced a considerably greater area than just the town by itself, and contained the settlements of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not to be applied before the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln found it a necessity to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to various tenants over the centuries, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
