The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's considered that there had been settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, historical artifacts and coins unearthed nearby show proof of this. The ancient Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable around about two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans would have at the very least known of the village as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was Saxons who introduced the market place in around the tenth century, and artifacts picked up show that they were inhabiting the region quite possibly from the 6th Century. The settlement as it was then was not reported till 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book recognized Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, comprised a lot bigger area than only the town itself, and contained the hamlets of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wouldn't be added until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to several tenants through the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
