As far as I know the Fretwells come from England. There is one Canadian genealogy researcher on this forum who has traced her family to Yorkshire.

I have been unable to trace my Fretwell family back to the original immigrant. They lived in North Carolina and South Carolina in the 1800's and 1900's.

A Peter Fretwell and John Fretwell immigrated to New Jersey from England on the ship "The Shield" in the 1600's.

If you find out more I would be interested in hearing about it.
