A village and well loved vacation resort boasting some excellent beaches, Heacham is situated in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton and the large port and town of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a population of around four thousand seven hundred inhabitants and is possibly best known for its association with the native Indian Pocahontas, who married a tobacco grower called John Rolfe, who came from Heacham. The area is additionally well regarded for its lavender fields, cultivated by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to be popular as a tourist resort in in the mid-nineteenth century, mainly because of the coming of the railway line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton at the beginning of the eighteen sixties. That culminated in the erection of the Jubilee Bridge in eighteen eighty seven in order to replace the old timber bridge. The village remains popular these days as a beach resort, with both South and North Beach peppered with camping and caravan parks.

The shorelines at Heacham are found upon the eastern banks of The Wash, as a consequence it is one of few beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets are visible over the sea instead of over the land.

Heacham's Historical Background: It is almost certainly over five millenia since the earliest human settlers colonized in the area surrounding Heacham, the finding of Neolithic and Bronze Age artefacts, gives evidence of this. Settlement continued in the area thru the Iron Age and into the Roman period, though it was likely not until the 5th century when the 1st true village was founded there. The name of the village is possibly derived from the name of a local Lord of the Manor during the twelfth century, Geoffrey de Hecham, although there is not any compelling evidence of this. An extra thought it was named after the close by River Hitch.

Recorded in the Domesday Book to be in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village back then supported 143 households (making it pretty substantial for the time) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest (1066) the area was ruled by a pair of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was thereafter controlled by Cluniac Monks, right up until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The most ancient existing building in Heacham is the St Mary the Virgin Parish Church, which is built in the Norman style and was completed in twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is in fact even older than the church itself, dating from about 1100, making it one of the earliest bells still surviving in England. The village sign in addition to a tablet inside the church record the famous ties with Pocahontas, the red indian princess who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only twenty two when she passed away three years later, though she produced a son, Tom, he subsequently returned to America. The hall survived for many years but was ultimately destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in Heacham with a partnership being arranged between a local nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of cultivating and distilling of lavender and associated merchandise. In 1936 there was destined to be one hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Ever since then the company has expanded significantly, and different types have been bred.
