The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there had been settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, historical relics and coins stumbled on in the area give evidence of this. The age old Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately 2,000 in years past, and the Romans will have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who created the market place sometime in the tenth century, and artefacts picked up suggest that they were inhabiting the locale quite possibly from the sixth century. The commune as it was isn't reported till 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book outlined Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, encompassed a considerably bigger area than just the town by itself, and integrated the hamlets of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not put in till the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a number of tenants over the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
