Leighton Buzzard History: It's believed that there had been settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, ancient relics and coinage found in close proximity show proof of this. The age-old Watling Street (built by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, cut through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable some two thousand years ago, and the Romans should have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The settlement as it was was not reported till 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book recognised Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, incorporated a lot wider area than just the town alone, and included 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" section was not to be appended until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to numerous tenants over the years, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
