Same question on place name came up here but sadly no answers there  :-\


 Under Roxburgh baptisms for 21 May 1780, the full reading is: 'Thomas Hume in Sunlas (?) Hill had two children registered here, the first was born ist November 1778 and baptized by the name of Janet, the other born the 11th December 1779 by the name of Peter baptized'.

Could it be Sunlaws Hill in the Parish of Roxburgh ?
That's on the 1841 Census transcription on FreeCEN.
