Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is believed that there existed settlements in and near to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, historic relics and coinage stumbled on in close proximity offer evidence of this. The longstanding Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the neighbouring areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly two thousand years ago, and the Romans should have at least known of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up the market place during the 10th Century, and artefacts stumbled on reveal that they were staying in the local area possibly since the 6th Century. The commune existing then is not observed till 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book mentioned Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, encompassed a far wider area than only the town itself, and incorporated the hamlets of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wasn't put in before the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it desirable to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a number of tenants through the ages, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
