Budge Row


Budge Row
   South-east from Watling Street to Cannon Street (P.O. Directory). In Walbrook and Cordwainer Wards.
   Earliest mention found in records : "Bogerowe," 1356 (Ct. H.W. II. 35).
   It is mentioned as early as the 54 H. III. (Anc. Deeds, C. 1172), and described as "the street running from Sandewystrate beyond Walbrook to St. Paul's," but is not named, and was probably known as "Atheling" Street (q.v.) at that time.
   Other forms : "Bugge Row," 1528 (L. and P. H. VIII. IV. (2), p. 1789). "Budgrowe," 1560 (Lond. I. p.m. I. 211).
   So called, says Stow, "of Budge, Furre and of Skinners Dwelling there" (S. 252). The word occurs as "boge" in Statutes of the Realm, I. 380, under the date 1363.
   In the N.E.D. the etymology is said to be obscure and no satisfactory derivation of the word is given. The first definition is "lambskin with the wool dressed outwards," as defined by Halliwell, s.v.
