A seaside village and well known vacation destination having some fine beaches, Heacham is found in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large port and town of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a population of approximately 4,700 inhabitants and is probably most famous for its link with the Indian native Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco merchant called John Rolfe, who came from Heacham. The area is also known for its fields of lavender, nurtured by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to get popular as a beach resort in the nineteenth century, because of the coming of the train line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn in the 1860s. That culminated in the Jubilee Bridge being constructed in the eighteen eighties taking the place of the ancient timber bridge. The area remains favoured these days as a coastal resort, with both the South Beach and North Beach being dotted with caravan and camping sites.

The seashores in this area are placed on the easterly banks of The Wash, this means that it's one of the only beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea rather than over the land.

Heacham's History: It's very likely roughly five millenia since the 1st settlements appeared in the area surrounding Heacham, the unearthing of Bronze Age and Neolithic artefacts, gives evidence of this. Human settlement continued there throughout the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, but it was very likely not till the 5th century that the 1st proper village was founded there. The name is claimed to be derived from the title of a Lord of the Manor in the twelfth century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, however there isn't any compelling evidence that this is a fact. Still another idea is, the name derives from the close by River Hitch.

Described in the 1086 Domesday Book to be included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village in those days had one hundred and forty three households (rather big for the time) and the manor was controlled by William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest (1066) the area was ruled by a pair of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was thereafter governed by a group of Cluniac Monks, right until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, when the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The most ancient remaining building in Heacham is the Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, built in the Norman style and was built in 1230, a bell in the tower is actually even earlier than this, dating from roughly eleven hundred, meaning it is one of the earliest bells still existing in England. The village sign along with a tablet inside the church recall the famous ties with the indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was just twenty two when she died three years later, but she produced a son, Tom, he eventually went back to America. The hall survived for centuries but was destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in Heacham with a partnership being created involving nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and a landowner named Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of growing and distilling of lavender and associated merchandise. In 1936 there would be 100 acres under cultivation. Ever since those early beginnings the venture has grown appreciably, and fresh varieties have been created. Lavender is now exported all throughout the world.
