I do not have any direct information on your line. However, my ggggg grandfather was named Frederick Baynor Nelson. He was born and raised in Craven County but married in Beaufort County before moving to Alabama.

It appears that it was common in my family to give the children and grandchildren (as their middle name) the last name of one of their relatives. For example, Frederick's middle name was Baynor. Frederick and his wife, Winnifred Owens, named two of their sons Owen Owens and Stephen Owens.

It is quite possible that our lines cross. It would be interesting to know if they did and at what point.
