According to Roskell's HoPVol 2, p 766 sub Dengaine, Sir John d'Engaine of Teversham (c1339-1394/5) was son and heir of Sir John d'Engaine of Teversham by his wife Joan; he was Sheriff of Cambs & Hunts 1376-1377, and returned as MP for the county of Cambs [knight of the shire] twice in 1388; JP from 1379; HoP says: "[he] came from a branch of the Dengaine (sic) family, long established at Taversham [sic; recte Teversham] and Stowe-cum-Quy in Cambridgeshire, which also [pssessed the manor of Wareseley in Huntingdonshire."
His father was also an MP for Cambs "in no fewer than 12 parliaments between 1338 and 1362" died in August 1363.
His wife Margaret was the kinswoman and next heir to Alice, widow of Sir Thomas Heslerton in "about 1375".
According to the 1619 Visitation of Cambridgeshire, the elder Sir John was son of William Engaine of Teversham, but it seems a generation is missing here, supplied by VCH sub Stow-cum-Quy & Teversham (see also Long Stanton). His father was actually Richard Engaine, whom VCH says
was living in 1310 and whose widow, Parnel, in 1316 acquired Teversham.
