The age old Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now known as the A5, came through the nearby areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable about two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at least known of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The village existing then wasn't cited till 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book reported Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, incorporated a lot bigger area than only the town itself, and included the settlements of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the 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 when the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to many different tenants over the ages, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
