A coastal village and well loved holiday resort boasting some superb beaches, Heacham is stationed in the county of Norfolk, between the resort of Hunstanton and the large port and town of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a population of around 5,000 inhabitants and is perhaps best known for its link with the Indian native Pocahontas, who married a tobacco planter called John Rolfe, who was born in Heacham. Heacham is also known for its lavender fields, nurtured here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to the village in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to become known as a coastal resort in in the mid-nineteenth century, mainly because of the arrival of the railway line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton in the early 1860s. That also led to the erection of the Jubilee Bridge in 1887 to replace an out-of-date wood bridge. The area still is favoured these days as a coastal resort, with both the South Beach and North Beach replete with caravan parks.

The beach areas here are placed upon the eastern shoreline of The Wash, meaning it's one of the few beaches in eastern England where sunsets can be seen over the sea and not over the land.

Heacham's Historical Past: It is quite likely more than 5,000 years since the initial settlements occurred in the area surrounding Heacham, the unearthing of Bronze Age and Neolithic artefacts, show evidence of that. Habitation continued in the area all through the Iron Age and into the Roman era, however it was most probably not until the fifth century when the earliest proper village was set up there. The name of the village is possibly taken from the title of a local Norman Lord in the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there isn't any solid evidence that this is a fact. Still another idea is, the name is derived from the close by River Hitch.

Noted in the Domesday Book as being within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at that time supported 143 households (pretty large for this period) and the manor came under the control of William of Warenne. Before the Norman Conquest this area was overseen by two Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was then governed by a group of Cluniac Monks, until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The earliest existing structure in the village is the St Mary the Virgin Church, built in the Norman style and was built in twelve thirty, one of its bells is in fact still older, dating from approximately 1100, one of the most ancient bells still in existence in England. The village sign in addition to a tablet in the church remind the villagers of the famous links with the red indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas was only twenty two when she passed away 3 years later, though she left a son, Tom, he later on went back to America. Heacham Hall endured for many years but was eventually destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in Heacham with a partnership being set up between local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner named Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of producing and processing of lavender and associated products. In 1936 there were a hundred acres being cultivated. Ever since these beginnings the company has grown significantly, and newer varieties have been produced. Lavender is now sold all around the globe.
