Leighton Buzzard History: It is considered that there existed settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, old artefacts and coinage stumbled upon in the area show proof of this fact. The historic Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the neighbouring towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe around two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans will have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who set up the market place during the tenth century, and antiquities discovered denote that they were settling the locale undoubtedly from the 6th Century. The village as it was wasn't listed until 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book specified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, comprised a significantly bigger area than just the town by itself, and comprised the hamlets of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion did not get put in till the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a variety of tenants over the generations, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
