The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, encompassed a substantially greater area than merely the town alone, and included the hamlets of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington.

The Manors of Leighton were let to a great many tenants over the eras, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
