The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there were settlements in and close to what's now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, historic artifacts and coins stumbled on in the area show evidence of this. The age-old Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now named the A5, ran through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable around about two thousand years ago, and the Romans would have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using a market during the tenth century, and relics unearthed imply that they were residing in the vicinity possibly since the sixth century. The village existing then wasn't observed until 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 recognised Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, embodied a considerably larger area than only the town alone, and integrated the hamlets of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wasn't added prior to the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to several tenants through the centuries, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
