Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's felt that there existed settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, ancient artifacts and coinage stumbled on in the area show proof of this fact. The early Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the close by settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable around about 2,000 years back, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the village at that time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who were using the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and relics stumbled on show that they were settling the area almost certainly from the sixth century. The settlement existing at this time was not listed till 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book described Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, covered a significantly wider area than just the town itself, and included the hamlets of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name seems to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece did not get inserted until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to several tenants over the ages, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
