Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard is near to the county boundary betwixt Bedfordshire and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of around thirty seven thousand and a historic past harping back to the Roman era, at which time the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is considered that there were settlements in and near to what's now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, historical artefacts and coins uncovered nearby give proof of this. The old Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now named the A5, went through the nearby areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe over two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was them who set up the market place during the 10th Century, and relics discovered suggest that they were inhabiting the local area quite possibly since the sixth century. The commune as it was isn't referred to until 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book outlined Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, comprised a significantly wider area than just the town itself, and covered the hamlets of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wouldn't be added on prior to the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a great many tenants through the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
