Thanks for responding. A little clarification might help.
"I have an early map of Henrico County."
What is this map? Date? Where can I find a good copy?
"Henrico County boundary moved eastward in 1629 taking up the western part of Charles City County."
This confuses me. In 1629, there were corporations and the counties were established in 1634. Are you saying that land on the north side of the James which was in the Corporation of Charles City was placed within the boundaries of the newly formed County of Henrico?
"My map shows the following:
"Two Mile Creek drains into the James River on the western
side of Neck of Land. A branch of the Two Mile Creek runs
southward into the James River near the area that was
"North of the headwaters of Two Mile Creek is Roundabout
Creek, a long creek that flows into the James River near
the Northern curve of Neck of Land.
"Near that point is Powhattan's Tree, and above (North) of Powhatan's Tree is the Four Mile Creek.
"There is not a Three Mile Creek on my map but it must be North of Roundabout Creek or one of it's branches."
This seems to illustrate the problem. I have found no map that lists BOTH Roundabout and Three Mile. All have Four Mile.
I suspect that Three Mile Creek is the same watercourse also described as the Roundabout Creek. The Keily 1853 map of Henrico shows Three Mile Creek about where modern topographical map shows Roundabout Creek.
"What is the name of the creek up-river from Deep Bottom which flows southward east of I-295 and west of Fair Hill and then turns east towards the River about where Varina Road turns due south into what looks to be a swamp?"
Your description looks like this was Two Mile.
