Leighton Buzzard Information:

Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the market town of Leighton Buzzard stands near the boundary in between Beds and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of around 37,000 and a past harping back to the times of the Romans, when the early Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjacent town of Linslade it is approximately mid-way between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it sits next to the Chilterns and has a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's felt that there were settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, ancient relics and coins unearthed in close proximity give proof of this fact. The early Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now named the A5, came through the nearby towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe about 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans will have at least known of the village as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was they who set up a market sometime in the 10th Century, and relics discovered show that they were living in the neighbourhood most likely since the sixth century. The settlement as it was isn't remarked upon till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, embodied a way larger area than only the town alone, and included the hamlets of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name could have derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wouldn't be added prior to the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to numerous tenants through the eras, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
