The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's considered that there had been settlements in and close to what is now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, age-old artefacts and coins found in close proximity offer proof of this fact. The historical Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 in years past, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The village as it was then is not mentioned until 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book recognized Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, encompassed a way greater area than merely the town itself, and contained the settlements of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component did not get included till the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from another "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a variety of tenants through the eras, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
