Bodman History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: English, German


The surname Bodman is of local derivation. The family name is derived from the place name Bodmann, a barony on the shores of the Lake of Constance, which straddles the German, Swiss, and Austrian borders. Many German family names were derived from the names of small villages, royal or noble households, and even large religious dwellings and monasteries.

Early Origins of the Bodman family


The surname Bodman was first found in Swabia, where the family is considered to have made a great early contribution to the feudal society which became the backbone of early development of Europe. The name became prominent in local affairs and branched into many houses which played important roles in the tribal and national conflicts, each group seeking power and status in an ever changing territorial profile. Ancient chronicles suggest that the oldest and most prominent line of the family stems from the old counts of Lindau on Lake Constance. Indeed, the founding father was made count of the castle Bodmann on Lake Constance by Duke Varin of Alemania in the year 720 A.D. Around 930 A.D., Caspar von Bodmann distinguished himself under Kaiser Heinrich I in battles against the Hungarian tribes. In the 10th century, the family split into two main lines, the Bodmann and the Hohen-Bodmann, the latter having their seat in the village of the same name on Lake Ueberling.
