A seaside village and well known vacation resort with some awesome beaches, Heacham is found in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the holiday resort of Hunstanton and the port and town of King's Lynn. The village has a populace of around 4,700 people and is probably best known for its historic connections with the Indian native Pocahontas, who married a tobacco merchant called John Rolfe, who originated from Heacham. Heacham is furthermore well regarded for its lavender fields, farmed here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to the area in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to be popular as a tourist resort in in the mid-nineteenth century, mainly because of the establishing of the train line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton at the start of the 1860s. This resulted in the erection of the Jubilee Bridge in the 1880's to replace an old wooden bridge. The area remains favoured these days as a seaside resort, with both the North and South Beaches being lined with caravan parks.

The shorelines at this point are placed on the easterly coast of The Wash, therefore it is one of very few beaches in eastern England where sunsets are visible over the sea and not over the land.

Heacham's Historical Past: It is possibly around five thousand yrs since the first human settlers arrived in the vicinity around Heacham, and the finding of Bronze Age and Neolithic relics, show evidence of this. Habitation remained there thru the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, although it was perhaps not till the fifth century when the first proper village was founded there. The name of the village is believed to be derived from the name of a local Lord of the Manor during the 12th century, Geoffrey de Hecham, though there is not any reliable evidence of this. An additional theory it was named after the nearby River Hitch.

Listed in the 1086 Domesday Book as being within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village during that time had 143 households (making it fairly sizeable for this period) and the Lord of the Manor was William of Warenne. Before the 1066 Norman Conquest the area was controlled by a couple of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was afterwards under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, until after the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The earliest existing structure in Heacham is the Parish Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, which is built in Norman style and was built in 1230, one of its bells is in fact even earlier, dating from about eleven hundred, meaning it is one of the earliest bells still in existence in England. The village sign in addition to a tablet within the church recall the historic ties with Pocahontas, the indian princess who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas was only 22 when she died 3 years later, but she produced a son, Tom, who eventually returned to America. Heacham Hall survived for many years but was eventually destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in Heacham with a partnership being created involving a local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner named Francis Dusgate, with the aim of cultivating and processing of lavender and related merchandise. Four years later there were 100 acres being cultivated. Ever since those early beginnings the business has grown appreciably, and new varieties have been raised. The lavender is now exported all throughout the world.
