[Spellyans] Bohill

Another Bo- name that has been puzzling me: Bohill in Penryn. Very old
street. I have heard various suggestions including Bole Hill and Bee Hill
(because of the legend of the town's founding) but could it possibly derive
from Bos and Heyl or similar?

Also on country road near Perranporth, old house called Gaten-Banns Cottage
which has me baffled.

Any wise words on either?
