A coastal village and well loved vacation resort featuring some excellent beaches, Heacham is found in the county of Norfolk, in between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the town and port of Kings Lynn. The village has a resident population of roughly four thousand seven hundred inhabitants and is probably most commonly known for its historic connections with the native Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco planter called John Rolfe, who originated from Heacham. The area is additionally well regarded for its lavender fields, cultivated by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to get fashionable as a seaside resort in the mid-19th century, after the arrival of the train line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton at the beginning of the eighteen sixties. That resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being constructed in the eighteen eighties to replace the ancient wood bridge. The village continues to be favoured today as a seaside resort, with both the North Beach and South Beach lined with camping and caravan sites.

The beaches in this area are found on the eastern coast of The Wash, consequently it is one of very few beaches in the east of England where the sun sets over the sea as opposed to over the land.

Historical Past of Heacham: It is quite possibly over five thousand years since the 1st human settlers showed up in the vicinity close to Heacham, and the uncovering of Neolithic and Bronze Age artefacts, shows evidence of this fact. Habitation persisted there throughout the Iron Age and into the Roman period, even though it was probably not till the fifth century when the 1st real village was set up there. The name "Heacham" is said to be taken from the title of a Norman Lord during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is no solid evidence that this is the truth. Still another theory it was named after the local River Hitch.

Listed in the Domesday Book (1086) to be part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at this stage comprised 143 households (making it rather sizeable for the period) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. Before the Norman Conquest (1066) Heacham was controlled by 2 Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was afterwards under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The eldest existing structure in Heacham is the St Mary the Virgin Parish Church, built in the Norman style and was completed in 1230, one of its bells is actually still earlier, dating from about 1100, making it one of the earliest bells still surviving in England. The village sign as well as a tablet inside the church tell of the famous ties with Pocahontas, the red indian who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas was only 22 when she died 3 years later, but she left a son called Tom, who subsequently returned to America. Heacham Hall survived for many years but was finally destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in Heacham with a partnership being created involving nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner called Francis Dusgate, with the aim of producing and distilling of lavender and related products. Four years later there was destined to be one hundred acres being cultivated. Ever since those early beginnings the company has grown substantially, and different varieties have been propagated. Lavender is currently sold all throughout the world.
