Sir Robert de Fenwyke of Fenwyke Castle, Northumberland (a 1189)
1. Sir Robert de Fenwyke of Fenwyke
  A. Sir Thomas de Fenwyke of Fenwyke & Capheaton (a 1274)

  a. Alan de Fenwyke
  m. _ Barrett (dau/heir of _ Barrett of Walker)
  (1) Sir John de Fenwyke of Fenwyke, Sheriff of Northumberland (a 1390)
  The above comes from BEB1841. Visitation (Northumberland, 1575) shows the early generations of this family with dotted lines, indicating uncertainty. This Sir John is shown there as son of Robert (by Elianora) son of Sir William son of Thomas. His son Alan (father of John) is shown as younger rather than elder brother of John and there are some additional generations reported before the pedigree 'stabilises' at the John shown below as married to Mary Strother then Elizabeth Woddrington (sic). We hope to review the above in due course.
m. Elizabeth Heaton (dau of Sir Alan Heaton of Heaton Castle)
  (A) Sir Allan de Fenwyke of Fenwyke

  m. (c1480) Joan Musgrave (dau/coheir of Thomas Musgrave of Ryall)
((1)) John Fenwicke of Wallington, Ryall & Fenwicke Tower (a 1528)
  Marshall (p32) leaves out this generation, showing William as father of Roger and the John who m. Anne Metcalfe. Visitation (Northumberland, 1575) shows this (Sir) John but names no wife and notes that he is omitted in another source. Provisionally we follow BEB1841, which shows 2 generations of Johns as shown, but suspect that there was just one John who married twice. We hope to review this in due course.

  m. Thomas Grey
  ((2)) Roger Fenwicke
  Roger of Bitchfield is shown as of this generation by Visitation (George Marshall (1878), Northumberland, 1615, 'Fenwicke', pp24-25). We follow BEB1841 & Visitation (Northumberland, 1575) in showing him a generation later as that is supported by the source used for the continuation.

  BEB1841 reports that children of this 2nd marriage were ancestors of the Fenwickes of Stanton, Nunnykirk, Harbottle, Brinkburne, East Heddon, Greenleighton & Langshawe but does not name them or follow their lines. The following comes from Visitation (Northumberland, 1575) with input/support from Visitation (Yorkshire, 1563-4, Fenwick) and is supported by various pages in 'A History of Northumberland' by Rev.
