On the 13th hole, Hall made a 10-feet birdie to move to 16-under and therefore a share of the lead.
World no. 39 Hall - now back within one shot - saved par brilliantly on the ninth after finding the bunker off her tee shot, to the delight of a home crowd growing in belief.
"I can't believe how many of you fans came out to support me, I am so grateful".
Hall was named Georgia in honour of the American state that hosts the Masters, which Faldo won two days after she was born, with a famous final-round 67 that mowed down Greg Norman.
Hall went to the devilish 18th with a three stroke cushion and while she probably didn't want that final three putt, that's the way it ended.
Hall, who received a check of $490,000, became the first English major victor since Karen Stupples won this event in 2004, and the fourth overall, along with Laura Davies and Alison Nicholas.
She followed Stupples and Catriona Matthew - in 2009 at Lytham - as the only British winners of the Women's British Open since it achieved major status in 2001.
But she only had one more birdie the rest of the day (at No. 15) and had a bogey on 8 before a disastrous double-bogey on the par-4, 17th hole dropped her three shots back of Hall.
Phatlum's advantage grew by a shot as she sunk a collection of fine putts for three birdies in a row, but Hall matched up to make two birdies of her own and stay in contention.
Buoyed up by a supportive overnight text from Tom Lehman, who won the 1996 British Open at Lytham, Hall finished at 17-under 271, becoming the second English player to win the championship after Karen Stupples in 2004.
Behind Phatlum in the lead, two-time major victor So Yeon-Ryu from South Korea is third, while Japan's Marmiko Higa is in a tie for fourth.
Phatlum shot a final-round 70 but was no match for Hall down the stretch. "I'm not allowed to show any emotion because if I show I'm happy that's not right", dad Wayne said.
"I was very confident going into this event from a year ago (equal third) and I love links golf and I'm playing in England, which is very rare".
It was her first major championship victory but I suspect it won't be her last. "It was my goal when I was nine to win the British Open".
"I think the big thing for me is just focus for every shot". An early birdie gave her hope but she struggled from that point on.
Playing in the final group with Rory McIlroy, the 25-year-old Thomas never let anyone closer than two shots of the lead.
Champions - Kenny Perry won the 3M Championship one last time, closing with a 3-under 69 for a three-stroke victory in the event that is being replaced by the PGA Tour's 3M Open. "I did not hit the ball as well today but we had so much control and I had a very clean card at the end".
World No. 1 Dustin Johnson shot 64 and for third on 10-under par.
