Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's considered that there existed settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, historical relics and coins found nearby offer proof of this fact. The olden Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the neighbouring areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe approximately 2,000 years back, and the Romans will have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who used the market place in around the tenth century, and antiquities uncovered indicate that they were inhabiting the vicinity in all likelihood from the 6th Century. The commune as such was not reported until 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) identified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embraced a way bigger area than just the town itself, and contained the settlements of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name appears to originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion was not appended before the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a variety of tenants through the eras, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
