The interesting web site identified below as a Main Source for this page reports that "The original spelling of the surname was HEUENYNGHAM with a silent 'v' and it has always been pronounced HENNINGHAM. Today, the name HEVENINGHAM has died out in the male line, although the name HENNINGHAM can still be found in the Birmingham area."

The following information was kindly provided by a contributor (OWC, 19.10.09).

The following is supported by Visitation (Cambridgeshire, 1575+1619, Burgoyne).
  m. Margaret (or Catherine) Burgoyne (d 1529, dau of John Burgoyne of Dry Drayton & Impington)
  i. Alice Haveningham
  m. Thomas Norton alias Greene of Kent
  ii. Anne Haveningham
  The Visitations (Cambridgeshire & Suffolk) show this Anne as married to Ambrose Jermyn. However, a contributor (SH, 27.07.17) has kindly advised us that Anne's father George's will (probated 01.1537) shows Anne as married to Richard Markham. The Anne who married Richard had (at least) 12 children and the Anne who married Ambrose (shown as m2. Dorothy Badbye, marriages possibly the wrong way around?) had (at least) 11 children, with dates apparently overlapping. Provisionally, we show both marriages but this must be wrong! It is, of course, possible that there were 2 sisters whose names have been confused.
  m. Sir Ambrose Jermyn of Rushbrook (d 1577)
  m. Richard Markham of Sedgebrooke (a 1562, 1572)
