Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's thought that there had been settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, historic artifacts and coins unearthed nearby give evidence of this fact. The age-old Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now identified as the A5, cut through the nearby settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans should have at least known of the village at that time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who were using the market place in about the 10th Century, and antiquities uncovered show that they were dwelling in the locale more than likely since the sixth century. The settlement existing at this time is not cited till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) recognized Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, embraced a much greater area compared to the town alone, and incorporated the settlements of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name could very well have originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not appended before the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it necessary to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to an assortment of tenants through the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
