Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's thought that there were settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, historic artefacts and coins uncovered near by offer evidence of this. The ancient Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now termed the A5, went through the close by towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable around about 2,000 in years past, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Romans were eventually followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using the market place during the 10th Century, and artifacts unearthed suggest that they were settling the neighbourhood undoubtedly since the 6th Century. The village existing at that time was not observed till 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book reported Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embodied a significantly greater area than simply the town itself, and consisted of the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wouldn't be put on until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to various tenants through the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
