The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, covered a lot wider area than just the town by itself, and included the hamlets of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town will probably have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not to be added on before the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to several tenants through the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
