..was this ever actually attested in OE as meaning a plough (the implement, that is)? According to the OED, the first recorded citation is actually from the Ormulum, ie in around 1200. Ƿidsiþ 16:46, 25 March 2010 (UTC)

I believe so: Coll. Monast. Th. 30, 29. Ðæt nán mon ne scyle dón his hond tó ðære sylg well illustrates the use of the word as an implement (among other citations), but I cannot make out the exact source...I find this at Bosworth and Tollers Leasnam 17:08, 25 March 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, don't worry I'm going mad. In fact, the word that isn't attested with this meaning in OE is not sulh, but ploh itself. Ƿidsiþ 17:21, 25 March 2010 (UTC)
