A village and well loved vacation resort next to some terrific beaches, Heacham is positioned in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the resort of Hunstanton and the large port and town of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a resident population of approximately four thousand seven hundred people and is possibly most widely known for its historic connections with the Indian native Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco merchant, who originated in Heacham. The area is furthermore known for its lavender fields, farmed here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to the area in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to become well liked as a coastal resort in the 19th century, because of the establishing of the railway line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the early 1860s. This also led to the construction of the Jubilee Bridge in eighteen eighty seven in order to replace an old wooden bridge. The village continues to be well loved these days as a coastal resort, with both the North Beach and South Beach being peppered with caravan and camping sites.

The beach areas at this point are situated upon the east shores of The Wash, therefore it's one of few beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets can be seen over the sea rather than over the land.

Heacham's History: It is most likely around 5 millenia since the earliest human settlements took place in the area close to Heacham, the uncovering of Bronze Age and Neolithic artefacts, show evidence of this fact. Settlement persisted there throughout the Iron Age and into the Roman era, however it was quite possibly not till the 5th century when the earliest proper village was founded there. The name "Heacham" is supposed 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 solid evidence of this. A second idea is, the name derives from the nearby River Hitch.

Reported in the Domesday Book to be included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham during that time incorporated 143 households (rather sizeable for this time) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest the area was overseen by a pair of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was subsequently under the control of Cluniac Monks, right until after the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The earliest remaining building in the village is the Saint Mary the Virgin Parish Church, built in the Norman style and was completed in twelve thirty, one of its bells is in truth even earlier than the church itself, dating from approximately 1100, meaning it is one of the oldest bells still in existence in England. Heacham's village sign along with a tablet inside the church outline the famous ties with Pocahontas, the red indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas was just 22 when she passed away 3 years later, still she produced a son called Tom, who later on went back to America. The hall endured for many years but was ultimately destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in the village with a partnership being created involving nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and a landowner named Francis Dusgate, with the goal of harvesting and processing of lavender and associated merchandise. 4 years later there would be 100 acres being cultivated. Ever since those early times the company has evolved significantly, and different varieties have been bred. The lavender is today sold all over the world.
