St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to become well liked as a sea side resort in in the mid-nineteenth century, with the building of the railway line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton in the early eighteen sixties.

Historical Background of Heacham: It is most likely around 5 millenia since the 1st human settlements took place in the area around Heacham, and the unearthing of Bronze Age and Neolithic artefacts, gives evidence of this. Human settlement persisted there throughout the Iron Age and into the Roman era, although it was quite possibly not till the 5th century when the 1st true village was founded there. The name "Heacham" is possibly taken from the title of a Norman Lord in the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any solid evidence of this. One more explanation it was named after the close by River Hitch.

Documented in the 1086 Domesday Book to be included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that point in time had 143 households (fairly large for the period) and the manor came under the control of William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest the region was overseen by a couple of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was thereafter governed by Cluniac Monks, until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, at which time the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The oldest surviving structure in the village is the St Mary the Virgin Parish Church, built in the Norman style and is dated 1230, a bell in the tower is actually even older, dating from roughly eleven hundred, making it one of the earliest bells still in existence in England. The village sign together with a tablet in the church record the historic ties with the indian princess, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. She was only twenty two when she passed away three years later, though she left a son, Tom, who subsequently went back to America. Heacham Hall survived for centuries but was eventually destroyed by fire in the 1940s.
