John Bodenham (c. 1559 – 1610), an English anthologist, was the patron of some of the Elizabethan poetry anthologies.
According to Bullen in the Dictionary of National Biography, Bodenham did not himself edit any of the Elizabethan miscellanies attributed to him by bibliographers, but projected their publication and befriended their editors.
