A village and popular vacation resort adjacent to some wonderful beaches, Heacham is found in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the port and town of Kings Lynn. The village has a population of about five thousand occupants and is possibly most recognized for its historic connections with the Indian native Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco planter called John Rolfe, who originated from Heacham. Heacham is additionally reputed for its lavender fields, nurtured here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to the village in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to get fashionable as a sea side resort in the nineteenth century, a result of the coming of the railway line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn in the early eighteen sixties. This culminated in the Jubilee Bridge being constructed in the eighteen eighties replacing the olden wood bridge. Heacham remains well loved these days as a holiday resort, with both North and South Beach being replete with camping and caravan sites.

The seashores here are set upon the eastern coast of The Wash, consequently it is one of the few beaches in the east of England where sunsets can be seen over the sea as opposed to over the land.

Heacham's History: It's possibly around five millenia since the earliest settlers arrived in the region near Heacham, the unearthing of Bronze Age and Neolithic artifacts, gives evidence of that. Human settlement remained there through the Iron Age and into the Roman period, however it was in all probability not till the fifth century that the first proper village was established there. The name "Heacham" is perhaps derived from the title of a local Norman Lord during the 12th century, Geoffrey de Hecham, though there isn't any reliable evidence that this is a fact. Another explanation it was named after the nearby River Hitch.

Described in the Domesday Book to be in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that point in time had one hundred and forty three households (fairly large for the time) and the Lord of the Manor was William of Warenne. Prior to the Norman Conquest (1066) the region was ruled by a pair of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was later governed by Cluniac Monks, until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The most ancient surviving structure in the village is the Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, which is built in Norman style and was completed in 1230, one of its bells is actually still earlier than this, dating from approximately 1100, one of the most ancient bells still existing in England. Heacham's village sign plus a tablet within the church recount the famous links with the indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only 22 when she died three years later, but she produced a son named Tom, he subsequently returned to America. Heacham Hall survived for many years but was destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in the village with a partnership being set up between a local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner called Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of growing and distilling of lavender and related merchandise. By 1936 there were a hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Since those early beginnings the enterprise has grown substantially, and fresh varieties have been created. The lavender is nowadays exported all around the globe.
