A seaside village and well known holiday destination having some excellent beaches, Heacham is situated in the county of Norfolk, between the resort of Hunstanton and the large port and town of King's Lynn. Heacham has a resident population of approximately 4,707 inhabitants and is probably most commonly known for its links with the Indian native Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco planter, who was born in Heacham. The village is furthermore known for its lavender fields, harvested here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to Heacham in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to be known as a seaside resort in in the mid-nineteenth century, with the opening of the rail line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn in the early eighteen sixties. This resulted in the building of the Jubilee Bridge in the eighteen eighties to take the place of an ancient wooden bridge. The area continues to be well loved today as a tourist resort, with both the South and North Beach being replete with caravan and camping sites.

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

A History of Heacham Norfolk: It is most likely over 5 millenia since the 1st human settlers emerged in the region surrounding Heacham, the unearthing of Neolithic and Bronze Age relics, gives evidence of this. Settlement continued there all through the Iron Age and into the Roman era, however it was likely not till the 5th century that the 1st true village was set up there. The name of the village is possibly derived from the name of a Lord of the Manor in the twelfth century, Geoffrey de Hecham, though there is not any compelling evidence of this. An extra possibility it was named after the local River Hitch.

Listed in the Domesday Book as being in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at that stage supported one hundred and forty three households (pretty large for this time) and the manor belonged to William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest this area was ruled by a couple of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was subsequently under the control of Cluniac Monks, right up until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, at which time the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The eldest existing building in the village is the Church of St Mary the Virgin, built in the Norman style and was built in twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is in truth still older, dating from around 1100, meaning it is one of the earliest bells still surviving in England. The village sign and a tablet inside the church remind the villagers of the famous ties with the red indian, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only 22 when she passed away three years later, still she left a son named Tom, who subsequently went back to America. The hall survived for centuries but was destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in the village with a partnership being arranged involving nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, to develop the harvesting and distilling of lavender and related products. In 1936 there was destined to be a hundred acres under cultivation. Since then the enterprise has expanded substantially, and fresh varieties have been created. Lavender is now sold all around the globe.
