Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's thought that there were settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, age-old artifacts and coins picked up in close proximity offer proof of this. The ancient Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe around 2,000 in years past, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who were using a market during the 10th Century, and relics picked up indicate that they were settling the local area possibly from the sixth century. The commune as it was isn't listed till 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) listed Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, comprised a significantly wider area than just the town by itself, and included the settlements of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion did not get put on until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a variety of tenants through the eras, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
