NOTES ON BODDEN
The tiny settlement of Bodden was founded in 1541 by Earl Michael Bodden (1512-1569).
It lies at a t-junction of two narrow country lanes.
Consisting mainly of farms and a few houses the area has a tranquillity and peacefulness about it, only broken by the occasional horse and rider and, of course, the farm traffic.
The nearby Ingsdons Hill offers wonderful views across to nearby Shepton Mallet.
One former resident, Trish Bodden (1753-1777) disguised herself as a man to fight in the American War of Independence.
She was killed at Saratoga.
Another, Ambrowse Bowden, was the first English colonist to settle in Maine.
