Various sources claim that John Fenwick, a settler in South Carolina, was descended from Edward Fenwick "of Stanton," and his wife Sarah Neville.
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
