The most ancient surviving building in the village is the Parish Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, which is built in the Norman style and was completed in twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is believe it or not even earlier than the church itself, dating from around eleven hundred, one of the earliest bells still in existence in England. The village sign and also a tablet within the church tell of the famous links 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 died three years later, nevertheless she provided John with a son named Tom, who eventually went back to America. Heacham Hall endured for many years but was destroyed by fire in 1941.
