Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's believed that there were settlements in and near to what is now named Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, historic relics and coinage stumbled on in the area give proof of this. The ancient Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now named the A5, went through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe around two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The village as it was wasn't listed till 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book named Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, incorporated a way larger area compared to the town itself, and comprised the hamlets of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not put on before the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a great many tenants through the eras, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
