Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's considered that there had been settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, historic relics and coins unearthed near by show evidence of this. The age old Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable around about 2,000 in years past, and the Romans should have at least known of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Romans were thereafter followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who used the market place in around the tenth century, and artifacts discovered show that they were staying in the area more than likely since the 6th Century. The commune existing at this time was not remarked upon till 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) outlined Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, covered a way wider area compared to the town by itself, and incorporated the settlements of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part did not get added up until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from another "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a great many tenants through the ages, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
