"BUDGE. This surname, now somewhat rare, is
recorded in Caithness and in Orkney. In a
manuscript "Genealogie of the Lairds of
Toftinggall," written about 1700, it is stated that
"Whence they came or took their name is
unknown for the most part, but by common
tradition it is affirmed . . . that they are
descended of the family of Macdonald, and
that the first of this family that came to
Caithness fled thither for slaughter, and changed
his name from Macdonald to Budge . . .
As the Budges had certainly settled in
Caithness towards the end of the fifteenth century,
their descent from the Macdonalds, and their
connection with the county, through Donald
Galloch, are not improbable (Henderson,"
Caithness family history, p. 181-182). Hugh
Macdonald, the Sleat seanchaidh, in his
History of the Macdonalds (HP., i, p. 20),
menlions "the Butikes in Caithness, of whom is the
Laird of Tolingail," that is, the Budges of
Toftingall. The Rev. John Fraser says that in
1438 there were "continual jarres betuix the
Benes (Bayns) and Budges and other nlan in
Cathnes" (Wardlaw, p. 103).
The notarial double of a charter granted
by 'Henricus de Sancto Claro, Comes
Orchadiae,' to Budge, of tenements in Wick
is undated, but a charter granted by one of
the two Henrys, earls of Orkney would carry
the Budges back to between 1379, the date
of creation of the first Henry St. Clair, as
earl of Orkney, and 1420 when the second
earl of the name died (Henderson, loc. cit.).
The first authentic mention of the name,
however, is in 1440 when two churchmen of the
name appear in record. Magnus Buge appears
in that year as canon of Ross, and in 1444
is mentioned as vicar of Tain (Pap. Lett.,
DC, p. 144, 149). The death of a brother of
Magnus, Henry Buge, or de Buge, described
as treasurer or Ross, took place at about the
same time (ibid., p. 431, 439, 449). John
Budge is recorded in Oxsetter, Shetland, 1615
(Shetland), and Isobel Buge was married in
Edinburgh, 1662 (Edinb. Marr.). Budege 1583.
Jenner's suggestion (Cornish grammar, p. 198)
from Welsh Ap Hodge is unlikely.
