I went back to the list of sources in my copy of the Dollins Family History. I found the following:

The Dollins family, their slaves, children, the name of the ship they came over on and the name of the ships captain are all on file in the National Archives on film. I don't have copies of these documents but do know the cousin who did the research used to live in Washington D. C. and spent quite a bit of time doing research in the National Archives there. I also found the following statement on the same page as the sources:
The Dollins came to the United States from Essex County, Great Britian in the 1700s, they settled in Albermarle County, Virginia. The info. in this statement would be found in the documents mentioned above and/or in naturalization papers of Richard Dollins. Another statement on the same page is: There are a number of Dollins living in Virginia today, most of them around Fredricksburg. That is about all I can tell you about the sources about where Richard Dollins was from.
