  Research Notes:

The Complete Peerage comments that the wife of John Wake "is said to have been a daughter of Sir John FitzBernard of Kingsdown, Kent; but a medieval pedigree roll calls her daughter of William de Fenes a Count in Spain". If the latter is correct, she would presumably have been the daughter of Guillaume [II] de Fiennes. 1
