Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's felt that there existed settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, early relics and coinage stumbled upon in close proximity show proof of this. The longstanding Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now known as the A5, came through the close by towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe about two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was they who were using the market place during the 10th Century, and artifacts found suggest that they were residing in the local area quite possibly from the sixth century.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, embraced a significantly larger area than just the town itself, and consisted of the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name seems to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not to be put on up until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a number of tenants over the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
