Bodger : variant of Butcher (Middle English bocher ‘butcher’) with voicing of the intervocalic consonant. Compare Willmi Butcher 1577 Barnard Botcher 1601 Jonathan Bodger 1643 in IGI (Sutton Cambs).alternatively from Middle English bocchere ‘bodger someone who mends or patches (metal) things’ with the same irregular voicing of the consonant. Compare Adam Bochecollok ‘mend tub’ 1326 in Patent Rolls. Some of the medieval instances of Bocher(e) may represent this sense rather than that in (i) but it is difficult to be sure on formal grounds alone.
