Another suggestion, which I think is far more likely than 'baldmoney':

How about a mistranscription or alternative spelling of bullimong (also found as bulmong, bully-mung etc)? It's an East Anglian word for a mixed crop of peas, oats and vetches - sources as above. The OED also gives it as a word for buckwheat.
Researching among others:
Bartle, Bilton, Campbell, Craven, Emmott, Harcourt, Hirst, Kellet(t), Kennedy,
Meaburn, Mennile/Meynell, Metcalf(e), Palliser, Robinson, Rutter, Shipley, Stow, Wilkinson

bully-mung

Seems very likely, good find. That's why I asked if we could see the image.
