A village and well known vacation resort adjacent to some wonderful beaches, Heacham is positioned in the county of Norfolk, between the town of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large port and town of King's Lynn. The village has a population of around four thousand seven hundred people and is probably most commonly known for its connection with the native Indian Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco grower, who was born in Heacham. The area is furthermore widely known for its lavender fields, nurtured by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to be popular as a sea side resort in the time of the Victorians, a result of the arrival of the railway line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton at the beginning of the eighteen sixties. This resulted in the construction of the Jubilee Bridge in eighteen eighty seven in order to replace an old wooden bridge. The area remains well-liked these days as a holiday resort, with both South and North Beach dotted with caravan sites.

The shorelines in this area are situated upon the easterly shores of The Wash, meaning it's one of the few beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets can be seen over the sea rather than over the land.

Historical Background of Heacham: It's quite possibly around five thousand yrs since the first settlers emerged in the region near Heacham, the uncovering of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, shows evidence of this fact. Habitation persisted there all through the Iron Age and into the Roman era, though it was most probably not till the 5th century when the 1st genuine village was set up there. The name is reported to be derived from the title of a Lord in the twelfth century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, however there is no reliable evidence that this is the truth. Still another possibility is that the name was taken from the close by River Hitch.

Reported in the Domesday Book of 1086 to be within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham back then was made up of one hundred and forty three households (pretty substantial for the period) and the manor belonged to William of Warenne. Prior to the Norman Conquest (1066) Heacham was ruled by a pair of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was later governed by a group of Cluniac Monks, right until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The earliest surviving building in the village is the Saint Mary the Virgin Church, which is built in the Norman style and was built in 1230, a bell in the tower is in fact even older than the church itself, dating from about eleven hundred, making it one of the earliest bells still surviving in England. Heacham's village sign as well as a tablet inside the church outline the famous links with Pocahontas, the red indian princess who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. She was only twenty two when she passed away 3 years later, however she left behind a son, Tom, he eventually went back to America. The hall endured for centuries but was destroyed by fire in the 1940s.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in Heacham with a partnership being created involving nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and a landowner called Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of producing and processing of lavender and associated products. A few years later there were 100 acres covered in lavender plants. Since these beginnings the company has grown substantially, and new types have been produced. The lavender is these days sold all throughout the world.
