John de Heneage (a temp Henry III 1216-1272)
1. Walter de Heneage
  A. Sir William de Heneage
  i. John de Heneage of Haynton (a 1337)
  a. (John?) Heneage
  (1) The wording in Commoners is slightly unclear at this point, indicating that the above John (a 1337) had acquired then sold Haynton but it was re-purchased in 21RII (1397-8) by "John de Heneage's son", the following John. It could be read as suggesting that the following John was son rather than grandson of the above John (a 1337). BP1934 reports that "6th in descent" of the above John was the John who d 1530. Having regard to this and the dates, we presume there was this intervening generation between the John who acquired/sold Haynton and the John who repurchased that estate.
(2) Maddison, which starts with the following John, disagrees with Commoners which shows the next John as father of William (m. Grace Stamford) father of William (m. William Cawood) father of both John (m. Elizabeth Preston) and Robert (m. Lucy Burton, father of Sir Robert of Copt Hall). We follow Maddison in showing the William who married Grace Stamford as younger son of the following John and so younger brother of the John who married Eleanor (not Elizabeth) Preston rather his grandfather. Given the "6th in descent" reference, BP1934 appears to have followed Commoners so the following disagrees with BP1934 over the next few generations.
