Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is thought that there were settlements in and close to what's now called Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, historical artifacts and coins stumbled upon near by show proof of this fact. The historical Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable some 2,000 years back, and the Romans would have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was Saxons who introduced the market place sometime in the tenth century, and artefacts found suggest that they were settling the neighbourhood quite possibly from the sixth century. The commune as it was then isn't cited till 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, comprised a lot greater area compared to the town itself, and comprised the hamlets of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name seems to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion did not get put on up until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it necessary to distinguish it from another "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a great many tenants over the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
