A coastal village and well known holiday destination with some superb beaches, Heacham is located in the county of Norfolk, in between the holiday resort of Hunstanton and the town and port of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a populace of around four thousand seven hundred occupants and is possibly most famous for its association with the native Indian Pocahontas, who married a tobacco grower called John Rolfe, who originated in Heacham. Heacham is also well regarded for its lavender fields, harvested by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to Heacham in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to become known as a sea side resort in the 19th century, because of the establishing of the rail line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton at the beginning of the eighteen sixties. This resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being built in eighteen eighty seven in order to replace the obsolete timber bridge. The area still is popular nowadays as a coastal resort, with both the North and South Beaches being replete with caravan parks.

The shorelines at this point are positioned on the eastern shores of The Wash, meaning it is one of the rare beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea instead of over the land.

Historic Past of Heacham: It is more than likely around five millenia since the earliest settlers turned up in the vicinity close to Heacham, the unearthing of Bronze Age and Neolithic artifacts, show evidence of this fact. Human settlement persisted in the area through the Iron Age and into the Roman period, but it was almost certainly not till the 5th century when the earliest real village was established there. The name is quite possibly derived from the title of a Lord during the 12th century, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is no solid evidence of this. Another thought is, the name is derived from the close by River Hitch.

Listed in the 1086 Domesday Book to be in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that moment in time was made up of one hundred and forty three households (rather substantial for the period) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. At the time of the Norman Conquest of 1066 the village was overseen by 2 Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was then controlled by a group of Cluniac Monks, right up until after the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The most ancient existing structure in Heacham is the Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, which was built in Norman style and was built in twelve thirty, one of its bells is actually even earlier than this, dating from roughly eleven hundred, meaning it is one of the oldest bells still existing in England. The village sign together with a tablet within the church remind visitors of the historic ties with Pocahontas, the red indian who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only twenty two when she died three years later, still she gave birth to a son called Tom, who later went back to America. The hall endured for many years but was destroyed by fire in the 1940s.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was founded in Heacham with a partnership being set up involving local nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and local landowner named Francis Dusgate, to develop the harvesting and distilling of lavender and associated products. A few years later there would be a hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Ever since those early years the venture has grown substantially, and fresh new types have been propagated. The lavender is currently sold all over the world.
