Leighton Buzzard History: It is believed that there had been settlements in and near to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, old relics and coinage stumbled on near by offer proof of this fact. The old Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now known as the A5, cut through the neighbouring areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans would have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who introduced the market place in about the tenth century, and artefacts uncovered imply that they were settling the local area undoubtedly since the sixth century. The settlement existing at that time is not discussed till 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book identified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, comprised a far greater area than only the town itself, and covered the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element did not get added on prior to the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it beneficial to distinguish it from another "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a great many tenants through the centuries, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
