Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's believed that there were settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, ancient artefacts and coins picked up near by show evidence of this. The old Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now called the A5, went through the close by areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable over 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were ultimately followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who set up a market sometime in the 10th Century, and antiquities unearthed reveal that they were residing in the area perhaps since the 6th Century. The village as it was then wasn't remarked upon till 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) identified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, embodied a way wider area than just the town by itself, and integrated the hamlets of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name seems to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not appended before the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it desirable to differentiate it from another "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a variety of tenants over the eras, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
