en Silverburn + SSE house

The existing name probably relates to the burn (unnamed on OS maps) which flows close to the north of Silverburn House. The house is neither named nor marked on OS 6 inch (1855). The name may have been inspired by Sillerhole, understood as Silverhole, just over a km to the south-west (see preceding entry).
