A village and well loved holiday destination having some fine beaches, Heacham is found in the county of Norfolk, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large port and town of Kings Lynn. The village has a population of roughly four thousand seven hundred occupants and is possibly most famous for its link with the native Indian Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco merchant, who was born in Heacham. Heacham is additionally known for its lavender fields, nurtured by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to become known as a seaside resort in the time of the Victorians, with the building of the train line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn in the early 1860s. That culminated in the Jubilee Bridge being erected in the 1880's in order to replace an old wooden bridge. The village is just as favoured these days as a seaside resort, with both North and South Beaches being peppered with caravan parks.

The seashores here are placed upon the easterly banks of The Wash, this means 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.

A History of Heacham Norfolk: It is quite likely over 5,000 yrs since the initial human settlers arrived in the region close to Heacham, and the uncovering of Bronze Age and Neolithic artifacts, shows evidence of that. Human settlement persisted there all through the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, although it was possibly not until the fifth century that the 1st true village was set up there. The name is quite possibly derived from the title of a local Norman Lord in the 12th century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any strong evidence that this is the truth. A further thought is, the name is taken from the local River Hitch.

Described in the Domesday Book (1086) as being part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at that time had 143 households (making it rather large for the time) and the manor belonged to William of Warenne. Up until the 1066 Norman Conquest the neighborhood was overseen by a pair of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was afterwards under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, right until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The most ancient surviving building in Heacham is the Parish Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, built in the Norman style and dates from twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is in fact even earlier, dating from approximately eleven hundred, meaning it is one of the most ancient bells still existing in England. Heacham's village sign and a tablet inside the church recall the historic ties with the indian princess, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas was just twenty two when she passed away three years later, though she left behind a son, Tom, who eventually went back to America. The hall endured for centuries but was destroyed by fire in 1941.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in the village with a partnership being set up involving local nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, with the intention of harvesting and distilling of lavender and associated products. By 1936 there would be over a hundred acres under cultivation. Ever since those early years the company has grown greatly, and fresh new types have been nurtured. The lavender is now sold all over the world.
