Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is believed that there had been settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, old relics and coinage stumbled on near by offer evidence of this. The ancient Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the neighbouring areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe around about two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans should have at least known of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The commune as it was then is not reported till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book named Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, incorporated a considerably bigger area than simply the town alone, and included the hamlets of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not to be appended up until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a variety of tenants through the centuries, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
