Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's thought that there were settlements in and close to what's now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, age-old artifacts and coinage found near by show proof of this fact. The age old Watling Street (made by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe some two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans should have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The commune as it was was not documented until 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 reported Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, comprised a considerably greater area than just the town alone, and incorporated the hamlets of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name seems to derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wasn't applied up until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to an assortment of tenants over the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
