The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there had been settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, early relics and coinage unearthed near by offer proof of this. The ancient Watling Street (built by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the close by areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable around about two thousand in years past, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who were using a market during the 10th Century, and artefacts discovered imply that they were dwelling in the vicinity most probably since the sixth century. The commune as such isn't listed until 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book reported Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, encompassed a substantially larger area than merely the town by itself, and included the hamlets of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name seems to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece did not get added on until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln found it necessary to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to numerous tenants over the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
