A coastal village and well known vacation resort with some great beaches, Heacham can be found in the county of Norfolk, between the resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the port and town of King's Lynn. Heacham has a resident population of around five thousand occupants and is probably most famous for its link with the Indian native Pocahontas, who married a tobacco grower called John Rolfe, who originated in Heacham. Heacham is additionally known for its fields of lavender, farmed here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to become well liked as a beach resort in the mid-19th century, a result of the establishing of the railway line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn in the 1860s. That resulted in the erection of the Jubilee Bridge in eighteen eighty seven replacing an older wood bridge. The village is still popular these days as a tourist resort, with both North and South Beach being replete with camping and caravan sites.

The shorelines at Heacham are placed upon the easterly shores of The Wash, consequently it is one of few beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea rather than over the land.

Heacham's History: It's almost certainly over 5 millenia since the initial human settlements manifested in the vicinity close to Heacham, the uncovering of Bronze Age and Neolithic relics, shows evidence of this fact. Settlement persisted there through the Iron Age and into the Roman era, whilst it was almost certainly not till the 5th century that the 1st proper village was set up there. The name "Heacham" is possibly taken from the title of a Lord in the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, though there isn't any solid evidence that this is a fact. Yet another explanation it was named after the local River Hitch.

Listed in the 1086 Domesday Book to be included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village in those days included 143 households (quite big for this times) and the Lord of the Manor was William of Warenne. At the time of the Norman Conquest (1066) this area was controlled by two Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was thereafter under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, right up until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The most ancient remaining structure in Heacham is the Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, which was built in Norman style and was completed in 1230, one of its bells is believe it or not even earlier, dating from about eleven hundred, one of the earliest bells still surviving in England. The village sign and also a tablet within the church outline the famous links with the indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was just twenty two when she passed away three years later, however she left behind a son named Tom, who eventually returned to America. The hall endured for many years but was destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in the village with a partnership being arranged involving nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner named Francis Dusgate, with the objective of producing and processing of lavender and associated merchandise. In 1936 there would be a hundred acres under cultivation. Ever since these beginnings the business has expanded substantially, and different varieties have been reared. Lavender is these days sold all around the world.
