Back in England in the early 1600s, there were two brothers, Thomas and Christopher Stokes. Christopher was the elder, inherited the manor of Titherton Lucas, and married Prudence Ivy, while the younger Thomas sailed off down the Avon to go adventuring in Bermuda. Meanwhile, Christopher and Prudence had (at least) two sons, again duly named Thomas and Christopher -- the first after the paternal grandfather and the second after the father.
This time Thomas was the elder and stayed home to mind the manor and marry Elizabeth Young while his younger brother Christopher sailed off to go adventuring in Virginia. However, oral tradition has it that Christopher lacked the funds to finance his venture [Thomas was stingey?] so his SISTER-IN-LAW hocked her dowry to pay for his pioneering efforts. [My cousin has verified in old English records that Elizabeth Young Stokes did indeed sell her dowry at the appropriate time.] In gratitude, Christopher promised that in each subsequent generation at least one child would be named in her honor.
In the first couple of Virginia generations, they seem either to have used the name Elizabeth or -- perhaps more likely -- several children died before reaching maturity and have hence not been recorded by history. But beginning with Sylvanus [son of William, who was a son of Christopher] the name Young appears as one of his sons, and the name remains used widely even today as the trademark of the line of Christopher of Titherton Lucas.
My own fanciful twist on this story -- and please don't tell my cousins!
Hope this is of some help to you, and good luck in your quest!
