Parents of Christian (Hall?) b 1693 Virginia, wife of James Stanton?

Both the surname and parentage of Christian "Hall" b about 1693 in Virginia who married James Stanton have been a roadblock for some years.

She has sometimes been identified as a Thweatt but this appears to be erroneous and resulting from bad genealogy of James' son James who married a Thweatt. There does not appear to be a Christian Thweatt of the correct period who is not accounted for. Family records and research some decades ago showed a surname of Hall but the origin of this is not known, perhaps a first husband's surname.

I am hoping some fresh eyes on this will have some ideas or locate new sources.
