This information may only muddy the waters but I just found a reference in Orange Co. Will Book 1 (p. 76)dated 1735 "William Dewitt of Spottsylvania Co; from Wm Beverly of Essex Do. for plantation "Coolspring" and 100 acres, port of Stockwell in St. Mark's Parish, (leased for) longest lives of William Dewitt, Ann Dewitt, his wife and Charles Dewitt, his son.
I believe St. Mark's Parish is now in Culpeper Co. I have been unable to locate the port of Stockwell. It must have been on either the Rappahanok or Rapidan River.
