Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's felt that there were settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, age-old relics and coinage found near by give evidence of this. The age-old Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the nearby areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe over two thousand in years past, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who used a market during the tenth century, and antiquities stumbled on suggest that they were living in the locale quite likely since the sixth century. The commune as it was then was not mentioned till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 described Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, comprised a substantially wider area than simply the town itself, and comprised the settlements of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wasn't inserted prior to the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to an assortment of tenants through the ages, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
