Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's felt that there had been settlements in and near to what's now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, ancient relics and coins found near by offer evidence of this. The age old Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now identified as the A5, went through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe around two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the village during those times.

The commune as it was wasn't reported till 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book documented Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embodied a considerably wider area than merely the town itself, and consisted of the hamlets of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not inserted before the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a number of tenants over the generations, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
