Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is considered that there existed settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, ancient relics and coinage uncovered nearby show evidence of this fact. The age old Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now known as the A5, ran through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly two thousand in years past, and the Romans will have at least known of the village during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was Saxons who developed a market during the 10th Century, and antiquities stumbled on denote that they were inhabiting the locale in all probability since the 6th Century. The commune as such wasn't listed until 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, embraced a lot wider area than simply the town itself, and consisted of the settlements of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wouldn't be put in till the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a great many tenants over the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
