      Historical Register" of 1896.  The accompanying artice states that John
      Fenwick played an important part in one of the greatest historical events
      that ever happened in England.  He was commissioned as major of cavalry,
      1648 Jan 13, to be in attendance with his squadron, and, in conjunction
      with the foot troops, to protect the scaffold during the execution of
      Charles I; which was done 1649 Jan 30.  In John Vanderbank's famous
      painting of the execution of Charls I, the leader of the cavalry is
      clearly shown, of which the illustration mentioned is a facsimilie, and is
      the only known portrait of John Fenwick.
