Johann himself received the last third of the county of Sponheim, and the inheritance of Sayn , which was made by her mother Adelheid von Sayn .

The inheritance occurred in 1247 after the death of their uncle Count Henry III. From Sayn . Heinrich received parts of the Sayner inheritance and married the heiress of the domination of Heinsberg . Johann resided at Starkenburg Castle and was married at least twice. The first marriage remained childless. His sons, in turn, shared paternal possessions. Gottfried founded a new line of the Counts of Sayn, Heinrich I. continued the Sponheim-Starkenburg line, which was later called the "back county". In October 1252, Abbot and Prior promised Corvey to Count Johann von Sponheim not to sell his court to Lüßig (district of Traben-Trarbach ) without his consent.
