The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's felt that there were settlements in and close to what's now called Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, age-old artifacts and coins found nearby show evidence of this fact. The old Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the neighbouring areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable about 2,000 in years past, and the Romans will have at the very least known of the village as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who created a market during the 10th Century, and artefacts found suggest that they were staying in the area most likely from the 6th Century. The commune as such wasn't referred to until 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 named Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embraced a lot bigger area than only the town alone, and consisted of the hamlets of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion did not get added on until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from another "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to several tenants over the ages, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
