"The 1881 census list's EJD Bodley's oldest son as Edwin T. D. Bodley.  I believe, based on family records that I have, and my grandmother's knowledge of her father, his full name was Edwin Frederick Blaker Bodley, born September 11, 1870.
This would then list him as Edwin F. B. Bodley, rather than Edwin T. B. Bodley.
Edwin F B Bodley emigrated to the U.S. on March 23, 1899, from Liverpool."

information received from Matthew Nazar, Readfield, Maine, U.S.A. (January 2002) who is the great grandson of Edwin F. B. Bodley
