Situation and origin of the name[edit] Bodmin
Bodmin
lies in the east of Cornwall, south-west of Bodmin
Bodmin
Moor. It has been suggested that the town's name comes from an archaic word in the Cornish language
Cornish language
"bod" (meaning a dwelling; the later word is "bos") and a contraction of "menegh" (monks). The "monks' dwelling" may refer to an early monastic settlement instituted by St. Guron, which St. Petroc took as his site. Guron is said to have departed to St Goran
St Goran
on the arrival of Petroc. The hamlets of Cooksland, Dunmere and Turfdown are in the parish.[6] History[edit] St. Petroc founded a monastery in Bodmin
Bodmin
in the 6th century[7] and gave the town its alternative name of Petrockstow. The monastery was deprived of some of its lands at the Norman conquest but at the time of Domesday still held eighteen manors, including Bodmin, Padstow
Padstow
and Rialton.[8] Bodmin
Bodmin
is one of the oldest towns in Cornwall, and the only large Cornish settlement recorded in the Domesday Book
Domesday Book
in 1086.[9] In the 15th century the Norman church of St Petroc was largely rebuilt and stands as one of the largest churches in Cornwall (the largest after the cathedral at Truro). Also built at that time was an abbey of canons regular, now mostly ruined. For most of Bodmin's history, the tin industry was a mainstay of the economy. The name of the town probably derives from the Cornish "Bod-meneghy", meaning "dwelling of or by the sanctuary of monks".[10] Variant spellings recorded include Botmenei in 1100, Bodmen in 1253, Bodman in 1377 and Bodmyn in 1522.[10] The Bodman spelling also appears in sources and maps from the 16th and 17th centuries,[citation needed] most notably in the celebrated map of Cornwall
Cornwall
produced by John Speed but actually engraved by the Dutch cartographer Jodocus Hondius
Jodocus Hondius
the Elder (1563–1612) in Amsterdam
Amsterdam
in 1610 (published in London by Sudbury and Humble in 1626). It is unclear whether the Bodman spelling signifies any historical or monastic connection with the equally ancient settlement of Bodman at the western end of the Bodensee in the German province of Baden.[citation needed] An inscription on a stone built into the wall of a summer house in Lancarffe furnishes proof of a settlement in Bodmin
Bodmin
in the early Middle Ages. It is a memorial to one "Duno[.]atus son of Me[.]cagnus" and has been dated from the 6th to 8th centuries.[11]

A Cornish cross on Old Callywith Road

Arthur Langdon (1896) records three Cornish crosses at Bodmin; one was near the Berry Tower, one was outside Bodmin
Bodmin
Gaol and another was in a field near Castle Street Hill.[12] There is also Carminow Cross
Carminow Cross
at a road junction southeast of the town. The Black Death
Black Death
killed half of Bodmin's population in the mid 14th century (1,500 people).[13] Rebellions[edit] Bodmin
Bodmin
was the centre of three Cornish uprisings. The first was the Cornish Rebellion of 1497
Cornish Rebellion of 1497
when a Cornish army, led by Michael An Gof, a blacksmith from St. Keverne
St. Keverne
and Thomas Flamank, a lawyer from Bodmin, marched to Blackheath in London where they were eventually defeated by 10,000 men of the King's army under Baron Daubeny. Then, in the autumn of 1497, Perkin Warbeck
Perkin Warbeck
tried to usurp the throne from Henry VII. Warbeck was proclaimed King Richard IV in Bodmin
Bodmin
but Henry had little difficulty crushing the uprising. In 1549, Cornishmen, allied with other rebels in neighbouring Devon, rose once again in rebellion when the staunchly Protestant Edward VI tried to impose a new Prayer Book. The lower classes of Cornwall
Cornwall
and Devon
Devon
were still strongly attached to the Catholic religion and again a Cornish army was formed in Bodmin
Bodmin
which marched across the border into Devon
Devon
to lay siege to Exeter. This became known as the Prayer Book Rebellion. Proposals to translate the Prayer Book into Cornish were suppressed and in total 4,000 people were killed in the rebellion.[14] Bodmin
Bodmin
Borough Police[edit] The Borough of Bodmin
Bodmin
was one of the 178 municipal boroughs which under the auspices of the Municipal Corporations Act 1835
Municipal Corporations Act 1835
was mandated to create an electable council and a Police Watch Committee responsible for overseeing a police force in the town. The new system directly replaced the Parish Constables that had policed the borough since time immemorial and brought paid, uniformed and accountable law enforcement for the first time. Bodmin
Bodmin
Borough Police was the municipal police force for the Borough of Bodmin
Bodmin
from 1836 to 1866. The creation of the Cornwall
Cornwall
Constabulary in 1857 put pressure on smaller municipal police forces to merge with the county. The two-man force of Bodmin
Bodmin
came under threat almost immediately, but it would take until 1866 for the Mayor of Bodmin
Bodmin
and the Chairman of the Police Watch Committee to agree on the terms of amalgamation. After a public enquiry, the force was disbanded in January 1866 and policing of the borough was deferred to the county from thereon. " Bodmin
Bodmin
Town"[edit] The song " Bodmin
Bodmin
Town" was collected from the Cornishman William Nichols at Whitchurch, Devon, in 1891 by Sabine Baring-Gould
Sabine Baring-Gould
who published a version in his A Garland of Country Song (1924).[15] Churches[edit] Parish church of St Petroc[edit] Main article: St Petroc's Church, Bodmin

St Petroc's Church

The existing church building is dated 1469–72 and was until the building of Truro
Truro
Cathedral the largest church in Cornwall. The tower which remains from the original Norman church and stands on the north side of the church (the upper part is 15th century) was, until the loss of its spire in 1699, 150 ft high. The building underwent two Victorian restorations and another in 1930. It is now listed Grade I. There are a number of interesting monuments, most notably that of Prior Vivian which was formerly in the Priory Church (Thomas Vivian's effigy lying on a chest: black Catacleuse stone
Catacleuse stone
and grey marble). The font of a type common in Cornwall
Cornwall
is of the 12th century: large and finely carved.[16][17] Other churches[edit] The Chapel of St Thomas Becket is a ruin of a 14th-century building in Bodmin
Bodmin
churchyard. The holy well of St Guron is a small stone building at the churchyard gate. The Berry Tower is all that remains of the former church of the Holy Rood and there are even fewer remains from the substantial Franciscan Friary established ca. 1240: a gateway in Fore Street and two pillars elsewhere in the town. The Roman Catholic Abbey of St Mary and St Petroc, formerly belonging to the Canons Regular of the Lateran was built in 1965 next to the already existing seminary.[18] The Roman Catholic parish of Bodmin
Bodmin
includes a large area of North Cornwall
Cornwall
and there are churches also at Wadebridge, Padstow
Padstow
and Tintagel.[19] In 1881 the Roman Catholic mass was celebrated in Bodmin
Bodmin
for the first time since 1539. A church was planned in the 1930s but delayed by the Second World War: the Church of St Mary and St Petroc was eventually consecrated in 1965:[20] it was built next to the already existing seminary.[18] There are also five other churches in Bodmin, including a Methodist church. Archdeaconry of Bodmin[edit] Main article: Archdeacon of Bodmin Sites of interest[edit] Institutions[edit] Bodmin
Bodmin
Jail, operational for over 150 years but now a semi-ruin, was built in the late 18th century, and was the first British prison to hold prisoners in separate cells (though often up to ten at a time) rather than communally. Over fifty prisoners condemned at the Bodmin Assize Court were hanged at the prison. It was also used for temporarily holding prisoners sentenced to transportation, awaiting transfer to the prison hulks lying in the highest navigable reaches of the River Fowey. Also, during the First World War
First World War
the prison held some of Britain's priceless national treasures including the Domesday Book, the ring and the Crown Jewels of the United Kingdom.

Beating the bounds
of the town. He was — according to the Dictionary of National Biography
Dictionary of National Biography
— a very good man of business. This still takes place more or less every five years and concludes with a game of Cornish hurling. Hurling survives as a traditional part of beating the bounds at Bodmin, commencing at the close of the 'Beat'. The game is organised by the Rotary club
Rotary club
of Bodmin
Bodmin
and was last played in 2015. The game is started by the Mayor of Bodmin
Bodmin
by throwing a silver ball into a body of water known as the "Salting Pool". There are no teams and the hurl follows a set route. The aim is to carry the ball from the "Salting Pool" via the old A30, along Callywith Road, then through Castle Street, Church Square and Honey Street to finish at the Turret Clock in Fore Street. The participant carrying the ball when it reaches the turret clock will receive a £10 reward from the mayor.[46] In 2015, beating of the bounds and Cornish hurling took place at Bodmin
