A coastal village and popular vacation resort alongside some great beaches, Heacham is located in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large town and port of Kings Lynn. The village has a population of roughly four thousand seven hundred occupants and is possibly most famous for its connection with the Indian native Pocahontas, who married a tobacco planter called John Rolfe, who originated in Heacham. Heacham is also well known for its lavender fields, farmed by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to the area in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to be known as a sea side resort in Victorian times, simply because of the arrival of the rail line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the eighteen sixties. This resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being built in 1887 to take the place of the ancient wood bridge. The village is still popular today as a beach resort, with both the North and South Beach being lined with caravan and camping sites.

The beach areas at Heacham are found on the east coast of The Wash, as a consequence it's one of very few beaches in the east of England where sunsets can be seen over the sea as opposed to over the land.

History of Heacham: It's in all probability roughly 5 millenia since the initial settlements occurred in the region near Heacham, and the discovery of Bronze Age and Neolithic artifacts, gives evidence of that. Settlement persisted in the area through the Iron Age and into Roman times, but it was probably not till the fifth century when the 1st actual village was founded there. The name of the village is perhaps derived from the title of a Lord in the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is no reliable evidence that this is true. Another thought is, the name is derived from the nearby River Hitch.

Noted in the Domesday Book as being included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham during that time consisted of one hundred and forty three households (making it pretty substantial for the times) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. Prior to the 1066 Norman Conquest Heacham was ruled by two Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was then under the control of Cluniac Monks, until after the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The earliest remaining structure in the village is the Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, built in the Norman style and is dated 1230, one of its bells is in truth even earlier than the church itself, dating from approximately eleven hundred, one of the oldest bells still in existence in England. The village sign and a tablet in the church outline the historic links with Pocahontas, the red indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only 22 when she passed away 3 years later, however she left a son, Tom, he later on returned to America. The hall survived for many years but was finally destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in the village with a partnership being arranged between a local nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, to develop the growing and distilling of lavender and related merchandise. By 1936 there were a hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Since then the business has expanded enormously, and new varieties have been propagated. The lavender is now exported all throughout the world.
