His intention was to engage in pastoral pursuits. Accompanied by three labourers from his village of White Roothing to act as shepherds, he entered into a partnership with the Pohlman brothers, first at Kyneton, and later at Ivanhoe. At this activity he was not a success.

After the loss of his capital he migrated to Van Diemen’s Land in 1843 and established a boys school at Campbelltown. Returning to Victoria in 1846 he continued to teach, opening a school in Victoria Parade. It flourished. Bishop Perry, the first Anglican bishop of Melbourne, recognising Budd’s qualities and success, appointed him as the first headmaster of the Diocesan Grammar School. This school opened in April 11, 1848.
