The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's felt that there existed settlements in and near to what's now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, old artifacts and coins stumbled on in the area give proof of this fact. The olden Watling Street (established by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, went through the close by settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable around about 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The village existing then is not reported until 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) named Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, covered a lot bigger area than just the town alone, and covered the settlements of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name could possibly have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not added on up until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from another "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to an assortment of tenants over the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
