Brodnax Cascade Plantation Slaves

Does anyone know how the Brodnax family acquired their slaves? The plantation was bought in 1811 by William Edward Brodnax, and given to his sons, Robert and Edward Travis. Did they bring slaves down from Virginia that they already owned? Did they purchase new slaves in North Carolina?

Thanks for any leads you may have to pass along! :)
