John was born before 1180. He was the son of Roger Cailly. He was Lord of Cranwich, Massingham, Bradenham, Oxburgh, Denver, Hillington, Hecham, Hildebrugh etc in time of Richard I and in 1202. In about 1199 his sister Alice de Cailly brought a plea of marriage against him, which was settled in 1200/1: her claim was to a tenement in Hildeburghworth, now Hillborough, Norfolk. In 1202 he was ordered to give his mother Beatrice an exchange in a suit over the rent of a mill given to his mother by her late husband Roger.
