Bode The Baronsde

Bode, The Barons de, for many years made a claim on the British Government for a share of the indemnification which was paid by the French in 1814 to satisfy the demands of British subjects whose property had been confiscated during the French Revolution. Charles de Bode, a baron of the Holy Roman Empire, married an Englishwoman, and had a son born in England, and Clement, the son of the latter, a French subject, tried to recover on the strength of this descent. The claim was finally rejected by Parliament in 1852.
