A seaside village and well loved vacation destination having some great beaches, Heacham is situated in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the town and port of King's Lynn. The village has a population of roughly 5,000 occupants and is probably most commonly known for its ties with the Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco grower called John Rolfe, who was born in Heacham. The village is additionally reputed for its fields of lavender, nurtured here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to the village in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to become well liked as a tourist resort in the nineteenth century, because of the establishing of the railway line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton in the early 1860s. That resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being built in the eighteen eighties replacing the ancient timber bridge. The village is still well-liked nowadays as a tourist resort, with both South and North Beach being lined with caravan and camping parks.

The shorelines at this point are found on the easterly banks of The Wash, which means it is one of the few beaches in eastern England where sunsets are visible over the sea rather than over the land.

History of Heacham: It's quite possibly more than five millenia since the 1st settlers turned up in the vicinity close to Heacham, the finding of Neolithic and Bronze Age artefacts, shows evidence of this. Human settlement persisted there throughout the Iron Age and into the Roman era, even though it was in all likelihood not till the fifth century when the first true village was set up there. The name is perhaps derived from the name of a local Norman Lord during the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is no reliable evidence that this is the truth. The other thought it was named after the close by River Hitch.

Described in the Domesday Book as being part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that moment in time was made up of 143 households (making it rather substantial for this times) and the manor came under the control of William of Warenne. Prior to the Norman Conquest the region was controlled by a pair of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was then controlled by a group of Cluniac Monks, right up until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The most ancient existing structure in Heacham is the Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, built in Norman style and dates from twelve thirty, one of its bells is actually even earlier than the church itself, dating from around eleven hundred, meaning it is one of the oldest bells still surviving in England. The village sign along with a tablet within the church outline the historic links with the red indian princess, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only twenty two when she died 3 years later, though she left behind a son called Tom, who later went back to America. The hall survived for centuries but was finally destroyed by fire in 1941.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in Heacham with a partnership being created between a local nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, to develop the producing and processing of lavender and related merchandise. A few years later there would be a hundred acres being cultivated. Since those early years the venture has grown greatly, and newer types have been nurtured. The lavender is today exported all around the globe.
