A village and well loved holiday destination with some excellent beaches, Heacham is found in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the port and town of Kings Lynn. The village has a populace of roughly 4,707 people and is probably best known for its link with the Indian native Pocahontas, who married a tobacco planter called John Rolfe, who came from Heacham. Heacham is additionally reputed for its lavender fields, farmed here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to be fashionable as a sea side resort in the nineteenth century, as a consequence of building of the rail line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton at the beginning of the 1860s. This also led to the Jubilee Bridge being constructed in the eighteen eighties to take the place of the old timber bridge. Heacham is just as favoured today as a seaside resort, with both the North and South Beach replete with camping and caravan parks.

The shorelines at this point are positioned upon the east shores of The Wash, consequently it is one of only a handful of beaches in eastern England where sunsets are visible over the sea instead of over the land.

Heacham's Historical Background: It is very likely around five millenia since the initial human settlers showed up in the vicinity surrounding Heacham, and the unearthing of Bronze Age and Neolithic artifacts, gives evidence of this. Human settlement remained in the area throughout the Iron Age and into Roman times, whilst it was in all probability not until the fifth century when the first proper village was established there. The name of the village is said to be derived from the title of a local Norman Lord in the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, although there is no compelling evidence that this is the truth. Still another theory it was named after the local River Hitch.

Documented in the 1086 Domesday Book to be included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that time was made up of 143 households (pretty large for the time) and the manor belonged to William of Warenne. Before the Norman Conquest (1066) the area was controlled by a pair of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was subsequently controlled by Cluniac Monks, right up until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The most ancient existing structure in Heacham is the Saint Mary the Virgin Parish Church, built in Norman style and dates from 1230, a bell in the tower is in fact still older than the church itself, dating from about eleven hundred, one of the earliest bells still in existence in England. Heacham's village sign and a tablet within the church outline the historic links with Pocahontas, the indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was just twenty two when she passed away 3 years later, though she produced a son, Tom, he subsequently went back to America. Heacham Hall endured for many years but was destroyed by fire in 1941.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in the village with a partnership being arranged involving a local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner called Francis Dusgate, with the aim of cultivating and processing of lavender and associated products. By 1936 there would be a hundred acres under cultivation. Ever since those early beginnings the company has evolved dramatically, and different varieties have been propagated. Lavender is nowadays exported all around the globe.
