Leighton Buzzard History: It is believed that there existed settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, ancient artefacts and coins unearthed nearby offer evidence of this. The age old Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through the neighbouring settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe some two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the village at that time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who created the market place sometime in the tenth century, and artifacts discovered show that they were staying in the local area very likely since the sixth century. The settlement as it was then is not mentioned till 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book reported Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, comprised a lot wider area than only the town by itself, and contained the hamlets of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion did not get included till the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it a necessity to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to several tenants over the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
