Bill, I saw your post about 'Coxes' in Henrico and did some digging. The Cox family, known as Coxe in the early days, had several land holdings in the present day area of Dutch Gap. Although there is no history of any of these places being called 'Coxes' I am sure it is just a general name used to identify it as land owned by the Coxe family. I found land patented in 1611 across the river from Henricus, called Coxendale. There was also New Plantation, which may be this same property, I did not get too detailed in the search. There was a place called Harrowattocks (aka Arrowhattocks, Harristockes) just above present day Dutch Gap on the north side of the river. About 3 miles up from this farm was another tract which I have seen called Newstead. All of these places are just south of where your James R. Roper lived out his life near Darbytown Road.

This is an old map of Henrico and is pretty interesting.

Library of Va had this info on a Roper home off Darbytown
