St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to be known as a seaside resort in Victorian times, as a consequence of arrival of the railway line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn in the early 1860s.

History of Heacham: It is most certainly roughly five thousand years since the first settlers turned up in the area around Heacham, and the uncovering of Bronze Age and Neolithic relics, shows evidence of that.

The name is said to be derived from the title of a local Lord during the 12th century, Geoffrey de Hecham, though there is not any firm evidence of this. A second thought is that the name comes from the nearby River Hitch.

It was thereafter under the control of Cluniac Monks, right up until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The village sign together with a tablet inside the church tell of the famous ties with Pocahontas, the red indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. She was just twenty two when she passed away 3 years later, nonetheless she produced a son named Tom, who later on returned to America. Heacham Hall endured for centuries but was ultimately destroyed by fire in 1941.
