She is named in her brother John's will of 1707. For a reference to her marriage, see "NY French Church, Published Huguenot Collection, v. 1, p. 137. There are questions about the traditional date and place of her birth. Some say she was born in Rye, Sussex, England, but the parish registers did not record birth dates and neither are there any baptisms of Bodines there during this time period (1680).

On June 18, 1724, she offered a petition relative to the will and belongings of her brother, John Bodine. She declared that her part of the belongings "is unjustly detained by her uncle, Dennis Rushé, of New York, shipwright" (English Manuscripts, 486).
