The commune existing then isn't documented till 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) recognised Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, encompassed a much wider area compared to the town alone, and incorporated the settlements of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wouldn't be put in until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to various tenants over the centuries, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
