Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's felt that there existed settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, old relics and coinage unearthed nearby offer evidence of this fact. The age old Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the nearby settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable over 2,000 years ago, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was they who were using a market in about the tenth century, and relics discovered suggest that they were settling the region quite possibly since the 6th Century. The village as it was then wasn't cited until 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 specified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, encompassed a significantly wider area than merely the town alone, and integrated the hamlets of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wasn't included up until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to numerous tenants through the ages, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
