Unknown Bainbridge connection - help please!

I have two ancestors with the middle name Bainbridge. No one in the family has any idea where the name came from, but our family has the tradition in most branches of using surnames as first and middle names. The Bainbridge name probably came from someone who married into the Hall family (the earliest Hall we have is Richard 1786 -1826). The Hall family was from Fauquier County, Virginia.

Here are the names - I hope they mean something to one of you!

Decatur Bainbridge Hall 1815-1871


Decatur Bainbridge Hall 1889 -1978
