Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the market town of Leighton Buzzard lies right on the border betwixt Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of about 37,000 and a past stretching back to the era of the Romans, at which time the early Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is believed that there existed settlements in and close to what's now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, early relics and coinage picked up in the area offer evidence of this fact. The age old Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now termed the A5, cut through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe around about two thousand in years past, and the Romans will have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who used a market during the 10th Century, and antiquities found show that they were inhabiting the vicinity most probably from the sixth century. The village as it was is not discussed till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book mentioned Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, embodied a way bigger area than only the town itself, and consisted of the hamlets of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wasn't added on until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from another "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to several tenants over the years, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
