Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Bozeat (locally / bo t/) is a village and civil parish in the Wellingborough borough of Northamptonshire, England, about 6 miles (10 km) south of Wellingborough on the A509 road, near Wollaston. At the time of the 2001 census, Bozeat's population was 1,941;[1] in 2008 it had risen to around 2,100.Rev Joseph Horace Marlow gives two possible origins of Bozeat's name: Bozeat probably existed in Saxon times - Saxon coins have been found - and an early spelling of Bozeat was Bosgate, suggesting Bozeat may have meant Bosa(s) gate. Bosa was a common Saxon name and a Saxon Earl Bosa held land near here. In a similar way Strixton is named after the Saxon thane Strix. In Old English geat/gaet, and in Middle English yatt and zett are all recognised as meaning gate, opening or entrance to woods or land. All the various spellings of Bozeat over the years show some link to both Bosa and gate.show more
