Leighton Buzzard History: It's considered that there were settlements in and near to what is now called Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, ancient artifacts and coins stumbled on nearby give proof of this. The longstanding Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now termed the A5, came through the neighbouring areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at least known of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Romans were later followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who set up the market place in around the 10th Century, and relics stumbled upon imply that they were inhabiting the neighbourhood most likely since the sixth century. The settlement existing at that time is not listed until 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book mentioned Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, comprised a far greater area compared to the town itself, and integrated the settlements of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section did not get added up until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a variety of tenants over the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
