The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, incorporated a lot larger area than just the town itself, and contained the settlements of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name appears to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wouldn't be added on until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to various tenants through the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
