A village and well loved vacation destination alongside some fine 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 resident population of approximately 4,707 occupants and is possibly most widely known for its historic connections with the native Indian Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco planter, who originated in Heacham. Heacham is additionally reputed for its fields of lavender, farmed here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to get well liked as a coastal resort in the mid-19th century, after the arrival of the train line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn in the early eighteen sixties. That resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being constructed in 1887 to take the place of an ancient timber bridge. The village still is favoured nowadays as a beach resort, with both North Beach and South Beach dotted with caravan sites.

The shorelines here are set upon the easterly coast of The Wash, this means it is one of the few beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea as opposed to over the land.

Heritage of Heacham: It is certainly over 5,000 years since the initial settlements took place in the vicinity close to Heacham, the unearthing of Neolithic and Bronze Age artefacts, show evidence of this. Settlement continued in the area through the Iron Age and into Roman times, while it was most probably not till the 5th century when the earliest genuine village was founded there. The name "Heacham" is reported to be taken from the name of a Lord during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, though there is not any firm evidence that this is the truth. An extra thought it was named after the local River Hitch.

Recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 as being in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village during those times comprised 143 households (fairly substantial for the time) and the manor belonged to William of Warenne. At the time of the Norman Conquest (1066) Heacham was ruled by 2 Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was afterwards governed by Cluniac Monks, until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The most ancient remaining structure in Heacham is the Church of St Mary the Virgin, which is built in Norman style and is dated 1230, a bell in the tower is in fact still earlier, dating from about eleven hundred, making it one of the oldest bells still existing in England. Heacham's village sign as well as a tablet in the church recall the famous links with Pocahontas, the red indian who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was just twenty two when she passed away three years later, still she produced a son called Tom, he eventually returned to America. Heacham Hall endured for many years but was eventually destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in the village with a partnership being created involving local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner called Francis Dusgate, with the aim of producing and distilling of lavender and associated products. In 1936 there would be over one hundred acres being cultivated. Ever since these beginnings the business has expanded significantly, and unique types have been raised. The lavender is nowadays exported all over the world.
