Leighton Buzzard History: It's considered that there had been settlements in and near to what's now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, old artifacts and coinage uncovered near by give proof of this fact. The olden Watling Street (made by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the close by settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately two thousand years back, and the Romans will have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was them who set up the market place sometime in the tenth century, and antiquities found imply that they were inhabiting the local area possibly from the sixth century. The village as such is not listed till 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) outlined Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, incorporated a far larger area than merely the town alone, and consisted of the settlements of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wasn't put on till the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a number of tenants through the eras, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
