      In addition it can be stated that the following has been proved with absolute certainty.
      Peter Dent, naturalist and professor of Cambridge University recorded in 1684 the background of his family in Cambridgeshire Pedigrees in the Heralds Collage of London, England.
      William Fenwick (a contemporary of King Henry VII) married Joane Musgrave who was co-heiress with her brother Thomas, Lord of Ryall and Heaton. They had at least one son, Sir John Fenwyke of Ryall and later Knight and Lord of Wallington. The name of his wife is not known. Sir John had at least one son, John who married Joane Clavering of Callaley County, Northumberland. Their son Sir Roger Fenwyck of Wallington and Mydelton was of an old family whose escapades with and against the Dukes of Northumberland made very thrilling history when the Percys and other border families were opposing the Kings. Roger married Dorothy Widdrington the daughter of Sir John. They had at least three children, two sons William and Raffe and one daughter Ann who married Roger Dent, born circa 1500.

      Earlier Fenwicks are as follows:

      Robert de Fenwick lived at Ville de Fenwick in 1190 and1230.
      Thomas Fenwick possessed the Manor Capheton.
      Sir Thomas Fenwick was Knight of Fenwick Manor.
      Sir John Fenwick was also Knight of Fenwick Manor. He was knighted in the French war by Henry V and given the motto “perit ut Vivat” and “Trouble Ville” in Normandy. In this generation Fenwick Towers descended to Sir John’s eldest brother Sir Alan de Fenwick.
      John Fenwick of “Newburne Hall”.
      Sir Roger Fenwick, Constable of Newcastle and Squire of the body to King Henry VII, a brother or father of William. [1]
