Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's felt that there existed settlements in and close to what's now named Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, age-old artifacts and coins stumbled upon near by give evidence of this fact. The age-old Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe over 2,000 in years past, and the Romans would have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was Saxons who used the market place during the 10th Century, and artifacts picked up denote that they were settling the area almost certainly since the sixth century. The commune existing at that time was not reported till 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book mentioned Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, embraced a much greater area than simply the town by itself, and consisted of the settlements of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name will probably have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wouldn't be added prior to the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln found it a necessity to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to an assortment of tenants over the generations, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
