A seaside village and popular holiday resort having some wonderful beaches, Heacham is set in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the town of Hunstanton and the port and town of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a populace of about five thousand inhabitants and is perhaps most famous for its connection with the Indian native Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco planter called John Rolfe, who originated from Heacham. The village is furthermore known for its lavender fields, harvested here by 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 tourist resort in in the mid-nineteenth century, simply because of the arrival of the railway line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn in the early eighteen sixties. That also led to the construction of the Jubilee Bridge in the eighteen eighties taking the place of an ancient wood bridge. Heacham is just as well-liked these days as a holiday resort, with both the North and South Beaches being replete with camping and caravan parks.

The shorelines at Heacham are placed upon the easterly banks of The Wash, meaning it's one of only a handful of beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea rather than over the land.

Historical Past of Heacham: It's likely approximately five thousand yrs since the first settlers colonized in the region around Heacham, the discovery of Bronze Age and Neolithic artifacts, gives evidence of this fact. Settlement persisted in the area thru the Iron Age and into Roman times, however it was possibly not until the 5th century that the first real village was established there. The name is claimed to be derived from the name of a Lord in the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any compelling evidence that this is a fact. Another explanation is, the name is derived from the local River Hitch.

Listed in the 1086 Domesday Book as being included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at that point in time consisted of one hundred and forty three households (making it rather substantial for this time) and the manor came under the control of William of Warenne. Prior to the Norman Conquest the region was ruled by a pair of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was subsequently governed by Cluniac Monks, right until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The earliest remaining building in the village is the Saint Mary the Virgin Church, which is built in Norman style and is dated 1230, a bell in the tower is in truth even earlier than this, dating from about 1100, meaning it is one of the earliest bells still surviving in England. Heacham's village sign together with a tablet in the church remind visitors of the historic ties with Pocahontas, the indian princess who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was just twenty two when she died 3 years later, though she left a son called Tom, he later went back to America. The hall survived for many years but was finally destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in Heacham with a partnership being arranged involving nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, to develop the cultivating and processing of lavender and related merchandise. A few years later there would be one hundred acres under cultivation. Since then the enterprise has expanded considerably, and fresh types have been propagated. The lavender is nowadays sold all around the globe.
