The village has a populace of approximately four thousand seven hundred people and is perhaps best known for its ties with the native Indian Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco merchant, who originated in Heacham. The village is additionally widely known for its fields of lavender, nurtured here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to Heacham in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to be popular as a tourist resort in in the mid-nineteenth century, due to the opening of the rail line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the 1860s. This culminated in the Jubilee Bridge being erected in 1887 taking the place of the ancient timber bridge. The village still is favoured these days as a beach resort, with both the North and South Beach being peppered with caravan parks.

The beach areas at Heacham are placed on the east shoreline of The Wash, therefore it is one of only a handful of beaches in eastern England where sunsets are visible over the sea and not over the land.

Historical Past of Heacham: It's possibly over 5,000 yrs since the earliest human settlements materialized in the vicinity around Heacham, and the uncovering of Bronze Age and Neolithic relics, gives evidence of this fact. Habitation continued in the area throughout the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, although it was probably not till the 5th century that the earliest real village was set up there. The name "Heacham" is perhaps derived from the name of a Norman Lord during the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, though there isn't any reliable evidence of this. One more theory is, the name is taken from the nearby River Hitch.

Described in the Domesday Book of 1086 as being part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that stage incorporated 143 households (making it fairly big for the times) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest (1066) the area was controlled by a couple of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was then under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, until after the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The oldest remaining building in the village is the Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, which was built in Norman style and dates from 1230, a bell in the tower is actually even earlier than the church itself, dating from approximately eleven hundred, one of the earliest bells still existing in England. The village sign and a tablet in the church remind visitors of the famous links with the red indian princess, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas was only 22 when she died 3 years later, nevertheless she left behind a son, Tom, he eventually went back to America. The hall endured for many years but was destroyed by fire in the 1940s.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in the village with a partnership being set up involving nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of harvesting and processing of lavender and associated merchandise. Four years later there would be a hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Since these beginnings the company has grown appreciably, and new varieties have been nurtured. Lavender is currently exported all around the globe.
