Bonner Hill (6″) would seem to be identical with boscus de Brunhouwe 1347For , Bronhowe 1393AddCh , Burnhawe t. Hy 8For . The forms are rather late for any certain interpretation of the name. The ground near here is marked as marshy and there are some springs near at hand, so the name may be a compound of ON brunnr and haugr , 'spring-hill.'
