The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, encompassed a significantly greater area than just the town alone, and consisted of the settlements of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section did not get applied before the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to various tenants over the generations, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
