A village and well known vacation destination with some wonderful beaches, Heacham is found in the county of Norfolk, between the resort of Hunstanton and the large port and town of King's Lynn. Heacham has a population of approximately 4,700 people and is possibly most widely known for its connection with the Indian native Pocahontas, who married a tobacco merchant called John Rolfe, who originated in Heacham. The area is also well known for its lavender fields, farmed here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to get well liked as a holiday resort in the time of the Victorians, just after the establishing of the rail line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton at the start of the eighteen sixties. This also led to the erection of the Jubilee Bridge in eighteen eighty seven taking the place of an oudated wood bridge. Heacham is just as favoured nowadays as a holiday resort, with both the South and North Beaches being peppered with caravan and camping sites.

The seashores at this point are placed upon the easterly banks of The Wash, this means that it is one of only a handful of beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea and not over the land.

Heacham's Historical Background: It is more than likely roughly five millenia since the initial human settlers colonized in the vicinity near Heacham, and the discovery of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, show evidence of this. Habitation remained in the area thru the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, but it was in all likelihood not till the fifth century that the earliest actual village was set up there. The name of the village is quite possibly derived from the title of a Lord of the Manor during the 12th century, Geoffrey de Hecham, although there is no firm evidence of this. A further possibility is that the name comes from the nearby River Hitch.

Reported in the 1086 Domesday Book to be part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village then consisted of 143 households (rather big for this period) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. At the time of the 1066 Norman Conquest Heacham was ruled by a pair of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was thereafter under the control of Cluniac Monks, until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The most ancient existing structure in Heacham is the St Mary the Virgin Church, built in the Norman style and is dated twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is in fact still older, dating from about eleven hundred, making it one of the earliest bells still existing in England. The village sign in addition to a tablet in the church recall the famous links with Pocahontas, the red indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. She was just 22 when she died 3 years later, but she provided John with a son called Tom, who later returned to America. The hall survived for centuries but was destroyed by fire in 1941.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in Heacham with a partnership being arranged involving a local nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of harvesting and distilling of lavender and related products. 4 years later there were 100 acres covered in lavender plants. Ever since these beginnings the enterprise has grown appreciably, and brand new types have been bred. The lavender is these days exported all around the globe.
