A History of Heacham: It's undoubtedly roughly five millenia since the initial human settlers arrived in the vicinity surrounding Heacham, and the finding of Neolithic and Bronze Age relics, shows evidence of this fact. Settlement persisted there thru the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, but it was likely not until the fifth century that the 1st proper village was founded there. The name of the village is said to be taken from the title of a local Lord in the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is no strong evidence that this is true. One additional thought it was named after the nearby River Hitch.

Reported in the Domesday Book (1086) as being in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that moment had one hundred and forty three households (rather large for this time) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. Before the Norman Conquest of 1066 the village was ruled by a pair of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was thereafter under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, when the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The most ancient remaining structure in Heacham is the Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, built in Norman style and is dated 1230, one of its bells is in truth still earlier than this, dating from around eleven hundred, meaning it is one of the most ancient bells still existing in England. The village sign and also a tablet in the church recount the historic links with the red indian, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. She was just twenty two when she died three years later, nonetheless she left behind a son called Tom, who subsequently went back to America. The hall endured for centuries but was ultimately destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in Heacham with a partnership being arranged involving local nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, to develop the growing and processing of lavender and related products.
