Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's thought that there existed settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, historic relics and coinage stumbled upon nearby show evidence of this fact. The historic Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now termed the A5, came through the nearby areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable around two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at least known of the village as they passed it.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embodied a far wider area than just the town alone, and included the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wasn't appended till the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a great many tenants over the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
