Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is felt that there had been settlements in and near to what is now called Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, historical artefacts and coins unearthed nearby show evidence of this. The age-old Watling Street (built by the Romans), now termed the A5, ran through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe some two thousand years ago, and the Romans will have at the very least known of the village as they passed it.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who set up the market place during the tenth century, and artefacts stumbled upon show that they were staying in the region possibly since the sixth century. The commune as such was not listed till 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) talked about Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, encompassed a way bigger area than merely the town itself, and contained the settlements of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not to be added on up until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to various tenants over the years, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
