Lewsey takes its name from the former farm on the site of the modern estates, 'Lewsey Farm'. Poynters Road, which passes by Lewsey and is the border between Luton and Dunstable, was named after Poynters Farm which was slightly to the north of Lewsey Farm. Lewsey Farm was situated on land belonging to the Lucy (Lewsey) family (who owned the manor from 1305 to 1455). The manor then passed to the Wingate family who were the lords of the manor of Toddington. The old manor house stood partly in the parish of Luton and partly in the parish of Houghton Regis; most of the manor buildings were destroyed by fire in 1832.
