A coastal village and well loved holiday destination adjacent to some fine beaches, Heacham is situated in the county of Norfolk, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton and the large town and port of Kings Lynn. The village has a populace of about 4,700 people and is probably most famous for its historic connections with the native Indian Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco planter, who was born in Heacham. Heacham is furthermore well known for its fields of lavender, nurtured by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to become popular as a sea side resort in the time of the Victorians, mainly because of the establishing of the train line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton at the start of the 1860s. This also led to the erection of the Jubilee Bridge in 1887 in order to replace the old wooden bridge. The village continues to be well loved nowadays as a beach resort, with both North Beach and South Beach replete with caravan parks.

The seashores at Heacham are situated on the east shoreline of The Wash, which means it is one of few beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets are visible over the sea and not over the land.

History of Heacham: It is quite possibly approximately five thousand yrs since the 1st settlements appeared in the area near Heacham, and the finding of Neolithic and Bronze Age relics, shows evidence of this. Settlement persisted there thru the Iron Age and into the Roman era, even though it was more than likely not until the fifth century that the 1st true village was established there. The name "Heacham" is said to be taken from the name of a Lord in the twelfth century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, however there is no firm evidence of this. Yet another thought it was named after the close by River Hitch.

Listed in the 1086 Domesday Book to be included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at this stage contained 143 households (making it pretty big for the time) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. Prior to the 1066 Norman Conquest the region was overseen by two Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was later under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, right until after the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The earliest remaining building in the village is the Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, built in the Norman style and was completed in twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is believe it or not still older, dating from approximately 1100, making it one of the oldest bells still existing in England. The village sign together with a tablet in the church record the famous ties with the red indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas was just twenty two when she passed away 3 years later, though she left behind a son called Tom, who subsequently returned to America. The hall survived for many years but was destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in Heacham with a partnership being created involving local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner called Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of producing and processing of lavender and related products. 4 years later there would be 100 acres being cultivated. Ever since those early times the company has expanded significantly, and new types have been raised. Lavender is now exported all over the world.
