What's the recommended sequence of shutdown of Derby... if for example I have Derby Network Server and Derby Engine running. What should be shutdown first?

Currently, I shutdown Network Server and then the Engine, the reason is so that Derby does not get rebooted by someone else making a call.

Sounds like a good approach to me. The network server is "really" just an application using the Derby engine via the embedded JDBC driver.
Stopping the server before the database engine is therefore fine.
