A coastal village and well known holiday resort having some awesome beaches, Heacham is situated in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the resort of Hunstanton and the large town and port of King's Lynn. Heacham has a populace of around 5,000 inhabitants and is probably most recognized for its historic connections with the Indian Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco merchant, who came from Heacham. The village is also well known for its lavender fields, nurtured by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to the area in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to become known as a tourist resort in the mid-19th century, because of the arrival of the rail line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton in the eighteen sixties. This resulted in the construction of the Jubilee Bridge in the 1880's taking the place of the ancient wooden bridge. Heacham is still well loved today as a beach resort, with both South Beach and North Beach being replete with caravan and camping parks.

The beach areas in this area are placed on the eastern shores of The Wash, which means it is one of only a handful of beaches in eastern England where sunsets can be seen over the sea instead of over the land.

Heacham's Historic Past: It's perhaps roughly 5,000 years since the 1st human settlers showed up in the vicinity surrounding Heacham, and the uncovering of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, show evidence of this fact. Habitation remained in the area thru the Iron Age and into the Roman period, but it was almost certainly not till the 5th century when the 1st real village was established there. The name is considered to be taken from the name of a Lord of the Manor during the twelfth century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, though there is not any firm evidence of this. A further explanation is, the name is taken from the close by River Hitch.

Registered in the Domesday Book (1086) as being in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village in those days was made up of one hundred and forty three households (rather sizeable for this times) and the manor belonged to William of Warenne. Before the Norman Conquest of 1066 the region was ruled by a couple of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was later governed by a group of Cluniac Monks, right up until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The oldest existing structure in the village is the Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, built in Norman style and dates from 1230, one of its bells is in fact still earlier than the church itself, dating from about eleven hundred, making it one of the most ancient bells still existing in England. The village sign and a tablet within the church recall the historic links with the indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was just twenty two when she passed away 3 years later, still she left a son called Tom, he subsequently returned to America. The hall survived for centuries but was destroyed by fire in 1941.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in Heacham with a partnership being created between a local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner named Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of harvesting and distilling of lavender and associated merchandise. By 1936 there would be over one hundred acres under cultivation. Ever since then the company has evolved substantially, and unique varieties have been nurtured. Lavender is today sold all around the world.
