VA 401 #1: Appeared in Aug 1928 as an upgrade to CRs 12, 17, 7 and 1. It initially ran from the North Carolina line south of Valentines up to Lawrenceville, then northwest 1.25 miles. A second piece of VA 401 replaced VA 323 from VA 44 (now VA 49) Victoria southeast to Kenbridge, then continued as an upgrade to CR 7 southeast 8.8 miles to the Dundas area.
In Aug 1929 (CTB), the southern piece of VA 401 was extended north 2 miles.
In 1930, VA 401 from Victoria to Kenbridge was renumbered as an extended VA 48 (today it is VA 40).
In June 1930 (CTB), the southern piece of VA 401 was extended to and along a brief duplex north with US 1, then northwest 10 miles to the Lunenburg County line, connecting the two pieces.
It appears in 1932 that VA 401 moved from SR 713 to SR 715 to head north into Lawrenceville.

In July 1933, VA 401 was renumbered as VA 34.
Today, the route is VA 46 from the NC Line north, using SR 768 loop near the state line and the SR 767 and SR 766 loops above Brunswick. VA 401 then cut east on SR 715 over the Gholson Bridge over the Meherrin River, back around to VA 46. The route followed VA 46 to Cochran, then US 1 north, then SR 758 which is cutoff by I-85. The route picks up VA 46 again. Just north of SR 652, VA 401 crossed the RR and stayed north of it (no longer public road) all the way to SR 644, then went north to SR 643 then west to SR 729 over to Danieltown. VA 401 then crossed VA 46 to stay on SR 729 which no longer connects to VA 137. VA 401 picked up VA 137 through Dundas, then used SR 616 south across the RR, then northwest on what is not a public road back to VA 137. VA 401 then followed VA 137 to VA 40 in Kenbridge.

Mapmikey wonders...with 409 being assigned to a state facility route, are we getting ready to see an influx of new ones, since in theory only 317 had been available for this?
Also of note, VA 409's crossing of the adjacent railroad tracks was initially signed as a "private crossing".  However, by February 2014, the crossing had been upgraded to signals and gates, with the private crossing signs removed.

VA 410 #1: Appeared in August 1928 as a renumbering of VA 313, running from VA 407 (now VA 10) Chesterfield CH through centralia to end at US 1/VA 31 (now SR 1625).
In July 1933, VA 410 was renumbered as VA 145
VA 410 #2: Appeared in March 1981 (CTB) as an upgrade to what had once been part of SR 627, running on Holland Rd from VA 44 (now I-264) and VA 225 in the Pembroke area of Virginia Beach southeast to VA 149 near Princess Anne.
VA 410 was decommissioned in Jan 2001 (CTB). It was not posted anywhere while it was active. I don't know why this wasn't numbered as VA 225.
VA 410, 411, and 414 were still being shown in Rand McN atlases as of 2010.

In 1932, VA 410 was renumbered as part of VA 409. Today it is SR 621 except near US 360 it used at least the northern SR 661 loop. If it used the southern SR 661 loop it stopped doing so before it was renumbered.

VA 411 #2: Appeared in March 1981 (CTB) as new primary routing, running on Rosemont Rd from VA 410 (now just Holland Rd) to US 58 in Virginia Beach just north of its interchange with VA 44 (now I-264). See scan under VA 410 entry.
VA 411 was decommissioned in Jan 2001 (CTB). It was not posted anywhere while it was active.
VA 411 #3: Proposed in 2001 and 2003 VDOT route logs: "From Route 234 in Prince William County to Route 50 in Loudoun County and from Route 621 in Loudoun County to the Dulles Greenway Parkway in Loudoun County (Tri-County Parkway). (Proposed)"
Per VDOT's website, in Nov 2005, the CTB approved the location for a new 10.4 mile north-south transportation link that would connect Manassas with the Dulles corridor. The location of the new road would be north of I-66 from the I-66 and Route 234 interchange to Route 50 in Loudoun County. The possible paths that were studied are shown here (pdf). The chosen path is segments C and D, roughly paralleling SRs 705 and 616 and runs 10.4 miles. The website says the Final Environmental Impact Statement is expected to be approved by the Federal highway Administration in fall of 2010.
The Nov 2005 CTB minutes says it will be limited access but does not mention a route number for the route.
I could not find anywhere on VDOT's website any mention of the SR 621 to Dulles Greenway segment.

VA 414 #1: Appeared in August 1928 as new primary routing, running from VA 13 (now US 360 Bus) Mechanicsville southeast through the Cold Harbor area to Fair oaks. 1928 and 1929 officials suggest VA 414 followed Meadow Rd east to where it turns into VA 156 where VA 414 continued southwest as an upgrade to CRs 24, 25 and 27 through Elko and Glendale to VA 41 (now VA 5), then duplexed west with VA 41 a while before heading west to New Osbourne Tpk through several Civil War Battlefield sites. The 1928 and 1929 officials show VA 414 using today's Kingsland Rd. The official designation in Aug 1928 read: "...Malvern Hill, Fort Gilmer, Fort Harrison and Fort Johnson" which implies the 1928-29 maps are wrong. However, the Aug 1936 CTB minutes that turn VA 156 over to the Park Service says specifically the road was taken into the state highway system in 1930.
The 1930 map shows VA 414 to be re-routed at Fair Oaks to run to US 60/VA 39 at Sandston, then duplex over to today's VA 156/Meadow Rd. It also shows VA 414 using Battlefield Park Rd (check the distance shown on the VA 41 duplex in the two scans below.
In July 1933, VA 414 was renumbered as VA 156. It still is VA 156 today except in the Sandston area it used Hanover Rd and VA 33; The US 60 duplex is mostly Old Williamsburg Rd; the VA 41 duplex is VA 5 only; west to Old Osborne Tpk is now Battlefield Park Rd.
I'm not convinced about VA 414 running on Meadow Rd. The Nov 1929 CTB clearly references VA 414 to be south of the railroad at Fair Oaks.

VA 415 #1: Appeared in August 1928 as a renumbering of VA 393 from US 60/VA 39 Bottoms Bridge (right at the Henrico-New Kent Line) past New Kent CH to about Angelview Church, then east as new routing 3 miles to the existing Pamunkey River Bridge, then replacing a separate piece of VA 393 on 14th St in West Point, ending at VA 30.
About 1930, VA 415 was rebuilt and removed from today's SR 611 Quaker Rd and (no longer connects to) Holly Hill Rd in Quinton; SR 627 Stage Rd/abandoned SR 678 east of New Kent CH; SR 626 Paige Rd Slaterville; SR 623 Pamunkey Church Rd
In July 1933, VA 415 was renumbered as part of VA 4. Today it is abandoned routing south of I-64; SR 674 Clint Ln; VA 249 east to VA 33 east to West Point except the Pamunkey River Bridge was slightly north of thoday's new bridge.
VA 415 violated the numbering scheme when it crossed the Pamunkey River from District 4 to District 6. This is odd because VA 53 was assigned to today's VA 30/273 to cross the District 5-District 4 line at Barhamsville and thus should have been the designation into West Point. However, the 1931 Route log says 53 ends at 415 and 415 ends in West Point.

In Dec 1930 (CTB), VA 417 was assigned 0.80 miles from the James River bridge to VA 19. It is unclear where this actually was in relation to alignments visible today nor where the road before this may have hit VA 19. Satellite images suggest multiple possibilities.

In March 1931, VA 418 was extended east over VA 19 to end at new relocated VA 19 Three Chopt Rd.
In July 1931 (CTB), VA 418 was extended up Three Chopt Rd to Patterson Ave as a duplex with VA 19, then east as new primary routing on Patterson to end at VA 432 (now VA 161).
In Dec 1931 (CTB), VA 418 was rerouted to continue east on Westhampton and Cary St to end at US 1/VA 31 (now US 60). This was a replacement of more VA 19. Three Chopt Rd became VA 441 (unnumbered now) and Patterson Ave became a rerouted VA 19 (now VA 6). See the VA 441 entry for an explanation of what I think happened here.
In July 1933, VA 418 was renumbered as VA 147. Today it is still VA 147 except VA 418 begin at US 60 as now, then cut east through what is now non-continuous routing through two apartment complexes, then north on Dunbrook Rd to SR 675, then west back to present VA 147. VA 418 also used SR 815 Big Oak Ln.
VA 418 #2: Appeared in Sept 1981 (CTB) as new primary routing, running on Monument Ave from VA 197 to VA 161 in Richmond.
VA 418 was decommissioned in March 1988 (CTB). It was not posted anywhere while it was active. VA 418 did not appear on state officials but did appear in Rand McN atlases.
VA 418Y: It was the SE piece of a triangle at the VA 13 (now US 60) jct near Midlothian. It met VA 13 at current SR 653 which was using today's Branchway Rd and met VA 418 (now 147) at today's Old Buckingham Rd.
It is unclear if this goes back to Aug 1928 but this was once part of VA 13's route.
In July 1933, VA 418Y was renumbered as VA 147Y. Today the road is physically destroyed and is now a parking lot.
