Budge

is lambskin with the wool dressed outwards, worn on the edge of capes, bachelorsʹ hoods, and so on. Budge Row, Cannon Street, is so-called because it was chiefly occupied by budge-makers.

“O foblishness of men! that lend their ears

To those budge-doctors of the stoic fur.”


Milton: Comus, 706, 707.
