"BODDIE, BODIE, BODDY. Perhaps from Old English (Anglo-Saxon)
boda, messenger. Hugh Body of
Roxburghshire rendered homage in 1296 (Bain, n,
p. 208). Andrew Body was admitted burgess
of Aberdeen in 1494, Robert Bawdy in 1548,
and Patrick Bodie in 1593 (NSCM., I, p. 37,
61, 84). Mr. Gilbert Bodie "a drunken Orkney
asse" was a member of the General Assembly
which met at Dundee, 1597-S (William Scot,
Apologetical narration, p. 103), and James
Body was heir by conquest of Master Gilbert
Bodye, minister of the church of Holme in
Orkney, in the vill and lands of Cragquhorthie
in the parish of Kinkell, Aberdeenshire, in 1608
(Retours, Aberdeen, 118). Patrick Bodie in
Pitterheid (? Peterhead) 1633 (SCM., m,
p. 102), Andrew Bodie in Dysart, 1645 (PBK.,
p. 281), and Christian Bodie in Edinburgh,
1647 (Edinb. Man.). The surname is common
in the Aberdeen Poll Book of 1696. James
Boddie and Thomas Boddie of Marnoch served
in the first Great War (Turriff). Guppy (p. 287)
has Boddy as a Norfolk surname, and says it
occurs in Cambridgeshire, Hunts, and
Oxfordshire in thirteenth century.
