One additional possibility is that the name was taken from the local River Hitch.

Recognized in the Domesday Book to be within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that moment in time had one hundred and forty three households (rather large for the times) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. Before the Norman Conquest (1066) this area was controlled by a couple of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was thereafter under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, until after the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

She was only 22 when she died three years later, nonetheless she produced a son, Tom, who subsequently went back to America. Heacham Hall endured for centuries but was ultimately destroyed by fire in the 1940s.
