Sarah Neville seems to have remained untraced in most accounts of the S.C. family, but I would like to suggest she is the Sarah, daughter of Henry Neville of Chevet, Yorks., shown as married to William [sic?] Fenwick "of Stanton," in Clay's elaboration of Dugdale's Visitation of Yorkshire.
See History of Northumberland, a pedigree in which a contemporary document is cited as showing her to be the sister of "Francis Neville of Chete [sic]."

If the above pedigrees are substantially correct, it looks as though the following line (among others?) would hold for Fenwicks of South Carolina.
John of Gaunt, Duke of Lancaster = Catherine Roet
(legitimated dau) Joan Beaufort = Ralph Neville, 1st Earl of Westmorland
George Neville, 1st Lord Latimer = Elizabeth Beauchamp (descended from Edward I)
Sir Henry Neville = Joan Bourchier (descended from Edward III)
Richard Neville, 2nd Lord Latimer = Anne Stafford (descended from Henry II)
Dorothy Neville = Sir John Dawnay of Sessay
Dorothy Dawnay = Henry Neville of Chevet
Gervase Neville, Esq., of Chevet = Anne Greenhalgh
Henry Neville, Esq., of Chevet = Eleanor Samford/ Sandford
Sarah Neville (whose eldest brother was named Francis) = Edward Fenwick of Stanton
