A village and well loved holiday destination having some superb beaches, Heacham is situated in the county of Norfolk, in between the town of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large port and town of Kings Lynn. The village has a resident population of approximately 4,707 inhabitants and is probably most famous for its connection with the Indian native Pocahontas, who married a tobacco planter called John Rolfe, who came from Heacham. The village is furthermore known for its fields of lavender, nurtured here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to be popular as a holiday resort in the nineteenth century, after the establishing of the rail line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton in the early 1860s. That also led to the construction of the Jubilee Bridge in the eighteen eighties replacing an obsolete timber bridge. The village continues to be popular nowadays as a seaside resort, with both South Beach and North Beach being dotted with camping and caravan sites.

The shorelines in this area are placed on the east banks of The Wash, as a consequence it is one of only a handful of beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea and not over the land.

Historical Background of Heacham: It is more than likely roughly five millenia since the earliest human settlers turned up in the region surrounding Heacham, and the discovery of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, gives evidence of that. Habitation continued in the area throughout the Iron Age and into the Roman era, however it was most likely not until the 5th century that the earliest genuine village was founded there. The name "Heacham" is believed to be taken from the name of a Lord of the Manor during the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any compelling evidence that this is true. A second possibility it was named after the nearby River Hitch.

Reported in the 1086 Domesday Book as being part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that stage had one hundred and forty three households (rather sizeable for this times) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. Prior to the 1066 Norman Conquest the village was controlled by two Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was thereafter under the control of Cluniac Monks, right up until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The earliest remaining building in Heacham is the Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, built in the Norman style and dates from twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is in truth even older, dating from around 1100, one of the earliest bells still surviving in England. The village sign as well as a tablet within the church remind the villagers of the famous ties with Pocahontas, the red indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only 22 when she passed away 3 years later, though she provided John with a son, Tom, who eventually returned to America. The hall survived for centuries but was ultimately destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was founded in the village with a partnership being arranged between a local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner named Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of cultivating and processing of lavender and associated merchandise. A few years later there would be a hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Since then the enterprise has grown dramatically, and fresh new varieties have been raised. Lavender is today exported all over the world.
