Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is believed that there had been settlements in and close to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, ancient artifacts and coins found near by offer evidence of this. The early Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now named the A5, came through the close by areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately two thousand years back, and the Romans will have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was Saxons who used a market sometime in the tenth century, and artifacts found suggest that they were residing in the neighbourhood quite likely from the sixth century. The settlement existing then isn't listed until 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 recognised Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, covered a way greater area than simply the town by itself, and comprised the hamlets of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name seems to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not put in up until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a number of tenants through the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
