I think that Rodestead (also and perhaps more correctly spelled Roadstead) is interchangeable with anchorage. I used to hear the term used when I was a kid and it was often used for an outer anchorage so that someone might say, "The inner anchorage was full so we anchored out in the outer rodestead." That said I am not really sure that there really is a difference between Anchorage and Rodestead though.
