Leighton Buzzard History: It is considered that there were settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, old relics and coinage picked up in close proximity show proof of this. The historic Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the nearby towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe over 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the village at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was Saxons who used the market place in around the tenth century, and relics picked up show that they were settling the local area more than likely from the 6th Century. The settlement as it was then was not referred to till 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) mentioned Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, covered a far bigger area than merely the town itself, and included the hamlets of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not to be put on up until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from another "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to an assortment of tenants through the ages, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
