The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, encompassed a much wider area compared to the town alone, and integrated the settlements of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not added on till the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to several tenants over the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
