A coastal village and popular holiday destination with some fine beaches, Heacham can be found in the county of Norfolk, in between the resort of Hunstanton and the large town and port of Kings Lynn. The village has a populace of about 5,000 occupants and is perhaps most widely known for its link with the Indian Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco merchant, who was born in Heacham. The village is additionally well known for its fields of lavender, nurtured here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to become fashionable as a seaside resort in in the mid-nineteenth century, due to the arrival of the rail line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn at the start of the 1860s. This resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being constructed in the 1880's taking the place of the older wooden bridge. Heacham still is favoured nowadays as a seaside resort, with both South Beach and North Beach being lined with camping and caravan sites.

The shorelines at Heacham are situated on the easterly coast of The Wash, this means it is one of only a handful of beaches in the east of England where sunsets can be seen over the sea instead of over the land.

Heacham's Historical Past: It's more than likely around 5 millenia since the earliest settlements manifested in the area close to Heacham, and the uncovering of Bronze Age and Neolithic relics, shows evidence of this. Habitation remained there thru the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, however it was most likely not until the 5th century when the earliest real village was founded there. The name of the village is quite possibly derived from the title of a Norman Lord during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, however there is no solid evidence of this. A further idea is that the name originates from the close by River Hitch.

Documented in the Domesday Book as being part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham in those days had one hundred and forty three households (quite big for the times) and the manor was governed by William of Warenne. Up until the 1066 Norman Conquest this area was overseen by 2 Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was later governed by a group of Cluniac Monks, until following the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The oldest remaining structure in Heacham is the Parish Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, built in the Norman style and is dated twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is in fact even earlier than this, dating from around 1100, meaning it is one of the earliest bells still in existence in England. Heacham's village sign and a tablet inside the church remind the villagers of the famous ties with Pocahontas, the red indian who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. She was just twenty two when she passed away three years later, however she produced a son, Tom, who subsequently returned to America. Heacham Hall endured for many years but was ultimately destroyed by fire in the 1940s.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in Heacham with a partnership being created involving a local nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, with the goal of cultivating and processing of lavender and related products. Four years later there were a hundred acres being cultivated. Ever since then the venture has evolved significantly, and brand new varieties have been produced. Lavender is today sold all throughout the world.
