Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is believed that there existed settlements in and close to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, ancient artefacts and coins found in close proximity offer evidence of this fact. The age old Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now called the A5, cut through the nearby settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable about 2,000 years back, and the Romans will have at least known of the village at that time.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, embraced a significantly larger area compared to the town alone, and contained the hamlets of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the town's name could have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wouldn't be put on before the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to several tenants through the eras, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
