A village and well loved vacation destination with some excellent beaches, Heacham can be found in the county of Norfolk, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton and the large port and town of King's Lynn. The village has a population of roughly four thousand seven hundred occupants and is probably most widely known for its historic connections with the Indian Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco merchant, who was born in Heacham. Heacham is additionally reputed for its lavender fields, cultivated here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to the area in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to become popular as a holiday resort in the mid-19th century, because of the opening of the railway line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton in the eighteen sixties. This also led to the building of the Jubilee Bridge in the eighteen eighties to take the place of the outmoded wood bridge. The area still is favoured these days as a seaside resort, with both North and South Beach being dotted with caravan parks.

The seashores here are placed on the easterly shoreline of The Wash, this means that it's one of only a handful of beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets can be seen over the sea instead of over the land.

Historical Past of Heacham: It is very likely more than five millenia since the initial human settlements appeared in the vicinity surrounding Heacham, and the uncovering of Bronze Age and Neolithic relics, show evidence of this fact. Habitation persisted in the area throughout the Iron Age and into the Roman era, but it was in all probability not until the fifth century when the earliest proper village was set up there. The name is perhaps derived from the title of a local Lord in the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, however there isn't any solid evidence that this is a fact. An extra theory is that the name originates from the local River Hitch.

Recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 as being in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that moment supported 143 households (making it fairly large for this time) and the manor was controlled by William of Warenne. Up until the 1066 Norman Conquest the region was ruled by two Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was then controlled by Cluniac Monks, until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The oldest existing building in the village is the Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, which was built in the Norman style and dates from twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is in fact still earlier than this, dating from roughly 1100, one of the most ancient bells still in existence in England. Heacham's village sign along with a tablet within the church remind the villagers of the famous links with the red indian princess, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. She was only 22 when she died 3 years later, nevertheless she provided John with a son, Tom, who subsequently went back to America. Heacham Hall survived for many years but was destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in the village with a partnership being set up involving nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, with the objective of producing and distilling of lavender and related merchandise. In 1936 there would be 100 acres under cultivation. Ever since these beginnings the enterprise has expanded considerably, and newer varieties have been nurtured. Lavender is nowadays sold all around the globe.
