Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is thought that there had been settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, ancient relics and coinage uncovered near by give proof of this. The early Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe around about 2,000 years back, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was Saxons who set up the market place sometime in the tenth century, and artefacts stumbled on mean that they were inhabiting the region in all likelihood since the sixth century. The village as it was wasn't mentioned until 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) recognised Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, embraced a way greater area than just the town by itself, and comprised the settlements of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not to be added on until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from another "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to an assortment of tenants over the ages, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
