Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's considered that there had been settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, early relics and coinage unearthed near by offer evidence of this fact. The age-old Watling Street (built by the Romans), now identified as the A5, ran through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable around about two thousand in years past, and the Romans would have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was Saxons who were using a market sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts discovered indicate that they were inhabiting the area almost certainly since the sixth century. The village as such was not discussed till 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) listed Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, covered a way wider area compared to the town alone, and comprised the hamlets of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section did not get put in up until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to an assortment of tenants through the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
