The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there were settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, ancient artefacts and coinage stumbled upon nearby offer evidence of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, cut through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable around about 2,000 in years past, and the Romans should have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Romans were eventually followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who created the market place during the tenth century, and artefacts stumbled on show that they were settling the neighbourhood quite likely from the 6th Century. The commune as such is not cited till 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book described Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, embraced a considerably wider area than merely the town itself, and consisted of the hamlets of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not inserted till the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to an assortment of tenants through the ages, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
