A village and well known holiday resort having some fantastic beaches, Heacham is situated in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the town of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the port and town of Kings Lynn. The village has a resident population of roughly four thousand seven hundred inhabitants and is probably best known for its connection with the native Indian Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco grower, who originated from Heacham.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to get popular as a holiday resort in the nineteenth century, mainly because of the building of the railway line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the early eighteen sixties. This culminated in the construction of the Jubilee Bridge in the eighteen eighties replacing an old timber bridge. Heacham remains well-liked these days as a coastal resort, with both South Beach and North Beach dotted with caravan sites.

The shorelines in this area are placed on the east banks of The Wash, this means that it is one of few beaches in the east of England where the sun sets over the sea instead of over the land.

Historic Past of Heacham: It's more than likely around 5,000 yrs since the 1st human settlers showed up in the vicinity around Heacham, the unearthing of Neolithic and Bronze Age relics, shows evidence of that. Human settlement remained in the area thru the Iron Age and into Roman times, though it was in all probability not till the 5th century when the earliest genuine village was established there. The name "Heacham" is possibly derived from the title of a local Norman Lord during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any compelling evidence that this is true. A different explanation is that the name derives from the local River Hitch.

Noted down in the Domesday Book of 1086 as being in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that time consisted of one hundred and forty three households (pretty substantial for this times) and the manor belonged to William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest (1066) this area was controlled by a pair of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was then under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, right up until after the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The earliest remaining structure in the village is the Saint Mary the Virgin Church, built in Norman style and dates from 1230, one of its bells is in truth even earlier than the church itself, dating from about eleven hundred, one of the oldest bells still existing in England. Heacham's village sign plus a tablet within the church outline the historic links with the red indian, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. She was only twenty two when she passed away three years later, nevertheless she provided John with a son, Tom, who eventually went back to America. Heacham Hall survived for many years but was finally destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in the village with a partnership being set up involving a local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, to develop the producing and processing of lavender and associated products. A few years later there would be over a hundred acres being cultivated. Ever since then the enterprise has expanded enormously, and newer varieties have been nurtured. Lavender is nowadays sold all around the globe.
