A seaside village and well known holiday destination featuring some excellent beaches, Heacham can be found in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the town of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large port and town of Kings Lynn. The village has a population of around 4,707 occupants and is probably most recognized for its connection with the Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco grower called John Rolfe, who was born in Heacham. Heacham is furthermore reputed for its lavender fields, farmed by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to become fashionable as a coastal resort in the mid-19th century, due to the arrival of the railway line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton at the beginning of the 1860s. That culminated in the Jubilee Bridge being built in the eighteen eighties taking the place of the obsolete wooden bridge. Heacham remains well loved these days as a seaside resort, with both the North Beach and South Beach peppered with caravan parks.

The beaches in this area are placed on the eastern shoreline of The Wash, as a consequence it's one of very few beaches in eastern England where sunsets can be seen over the sea and not over the land.

Historical Past of Heacham: It's very likely approximately five millenia since the 1st human settlers emerged in the region surrounding Heacham, the finding of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, gives evidence of this. Settlement persisted in the area thru the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, however it was more than likely not till the fifth century that the 1st true village was founded there. The name of the village is quite possibly taken from the title of a Lord during the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there isn't any reliable evidence that this is the truth. A further possibility is that the name is taken from the nearby River Hitch.

Listed in the Domesday Book to be in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that stage was made up of one hundred and forty three households (making it quite big for the period) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. Up until the 1066 Norman Conquest the neighborhood was ruled by two Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was then controlled by Cluniac Monks, right until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The eldest existing building in the village is the Saint Mary the Virgin Parish Church, which was built in Norman style and was built in twelve thirty, one of its bells is actually even earlier, dating from around 1100, one of the oldest bells still existing in England. The village sign and a tablet inside the church remind visitors of the historic links with Pocahontas, the red indian princess who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. She was just 22 when she died three years later, still she left behind a son called Tom, he later went back to America. Heacham Hall survived for many years but was finally destroyed by fire in the 1940s.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in the village with a partnership being created between a local nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and local landowner named Francis Dusgate, to develop the harvesting and processing of lavender and associated merchandise. In 1936 there was destined to be one hundred acres being cultivated. Since those early days the enterprise has expanded dramatically, and unique varieties have been propagated. Lavender is now sold all around the globe.
