Leighton Buzzard History: It's considered that there were settlements in and close to what's now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, age-old relics and coinage unearthed nearby give evidence of this. The longstanding Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now known as the A5, cut through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable around about two thousand years back, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was they who developed the market place in about the 10th Century, and relics stumbled upon suggest that they were residing in the locale quite likely from the 6th Century. The settlement as such wasn't cited till 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) named Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, comprised a far wider area than simply the town by itself, and incorporated the settlements of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name might have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element did not get put on up until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to various tenants over the generations, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
