The Leyland name derives from the location of the first vehicles built by James Sumner, who built his first steam-driven wagon in the town of Leyland in Lancashire in 1884. By joining forces with the Spurrier family, Sumner set up the Lancashire Steam Motor Company in 1896.

After successfully experimenting with the internal combustion engine, the company was renamed Leyland Motors Ltd in 1907.
