Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is believed that there existed settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, early artefacts and coinage unearthed nearby give proof of this fact. The age old Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now called the A5, cut through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe some 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up a market sometime in the tenth century, and artefacts discovered show that they were dwelling in the local area probably from the sixth century. The village as it was then is not remarked upon until 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book reported Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, comprised a far greater area than simply the town by itself, and covered the settlements of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section did not get put on till the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a variety of tenants through the generations, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
