The surviving spelling is southwest England dialect; the word was generally pronounced in Old English and Middle English with a -dg- sound as “budge,” or “bidge.” Meaning “believe, accept as true” first recorded 1926. Related: Bought; buying. To buy time “prevent further deterioration but make no improvement” is attested from 1946.
