St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to be popular as a seaside resort in the nineteenth century, after the establishing of the train line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn at the start of the 1860s.

Heacham's Historical Past: It is most likely roughly five millenia since the initial human settlers showed up in the area around Heacham, and the uncovering of Bronze Age and Neolithic artefacts, shows evidence of this fact. Settlement persisted in the area through the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, however it was almost certainly not till the fifth century when the earliest genuine village was set up there. The name "Heacham" is possibly derived from the name of a Lord during the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any strong evidence of this. One additional thought it was named after the close by River Hitch.

Noted in the Domesday Book (1086) as being within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that point in time comprised 143 households (making it quite sizeable for this period) and the manor belonged to William of Warenne.

The eldest existing building in the village is the Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, which was built in Norman style and was built in 1230, a bell in the tower is believe it or not still earlier, dating from roughly eleven hundred, making it one of the earliest bells still existing in England. The village sign as well as a tablet in the church remind visitors of the historic ties with Pocahontas, the red indian who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was just twenty two when she passed away 3 years later, nonetheless she left a son named Tom, he subsequently went back to America. Heacham Hall survived for many years but was ultimately destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.
