From the cornish 'Bod-meneghy' which interprets as "dwelling of or by the sanctuary of monks", 'Bod' being the Cornish for dwelling or abode. Back in the 6th century it is said that St Petroc took over a monastic settlement that had earlier been established by Uuren, a hermit, later known as St Guron.
Bod is the Cornish word for abode or dwelling. In c975 and 1086 it was spelt Bodmine; in 1100 Botmenei; in 1253 Bodmen; in 1337 Bodman; and in 1522 Bodmyn.
According to tradition, St Petroc travelled from Padstow to Bodmin early in the 6th century, where he took over an existing monastic settlement established earlier by Uuren, a hermit and later to be known as St Guron. According to the Doomsday survey in 1086 Bodmin had become the most important religious centre in Cornwall. Bodmin was also the County town of Cornwall until the Crown Courts moved to Truro.
