A village and popular holiday resort having some great beaches, Heacham can be found in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the town of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large port and town of King's Lynn. Heacham has a resident population of roughly five thousand occupants and is possibly best known for its link with the Indian native Pocahontas, who married a tobacco grower called John Rolfe, who originated from Heacham. The village is also widely known for its fields of lavender, farmed here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to become known as a beach resort in the time of the Victorians, a result of the arrival of the rail line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton in the eighteen sixties. This culminated in the Jubilee Bridge being erected in the eighteen eighties to replace the older timber bridge. The area continues to be popular today as a beach resort, with both South and North Beach lined with caravan parks.

The beach areas in this area are placed upon the east shoreline of The Wash, therefore it is one of the few beaches in the east of England where the sun sets over the sea and not over the land.

Historical Background of Heacham: It is most probably approximately five thousand years since the first human settlements materialized in the vicinity surrounding Heacham, the finding of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, gives evidence of this fact. Human settlement remained there through the Iron Age and into the Roman period, even though it was most likely not until the fifth century when the first real village was set up there. The name "Heacham" is perhaps taken from the name of a local Lord during the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, however there is not any solid evidence that this is a fact. A further theory it was named after the local River Hitch.

Reported in the 1086 Domesday Book as being included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at this stage comprised 143 households (pretty big for this times) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest the region was ruled by two Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was later under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, right up until after the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The eldest surviving building in the village is the Saint Mary the Virgin Church, which is built in the Norman style and is dated twelve thirty, one of its bells is in fact even earlier than this, dating from approximately eleven hundred, one of the most ancient bells still surviving in England. Heacham's village sign and a tablet inside the church record the historic ties with Pocahontas, the indian princess who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only twenty two when she passed away three years later, nevertheless she left behind a son, Tom, he later on returned to America. Heacham Hall survived for many years but was eventually destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in Heacham with a partnership being created involving a local nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, with the objective of growing and distilling of lavender and related products. A few years later there was destined to be 100 acres being cultivated. Ever since these beginnings the enterprise has grown dramatically, and different varieties have been nurtured. The lavender is these days sold all over the world.
