Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is thought that there existed settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, historic relics and coinage unearthed near by offer proof of this fact. The historic Watling Street (established by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the close by towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly 2,000 years ago, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, incorporated a far bigger area than merely the town by itself, and incorporated the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wouldn't be put in up until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to an assortment of tenants through the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
