A village and popular holiday destination adjacent to some fine beaches, Heacham can be found in the county of Norfolk, between the resort of Hunstanton and the town and port of King's Lynn. Heacham has a populace of approximately 4,700 inhabitants and is possibly most famous for its links with the Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco planter called John Rolfe, who was born in Heacham. Heacham is additionally widely known for its lavender fields, grown here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to get well liked as a beach resort in the time of the Victorians, a result of the opening of the rail line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn in the early eighteen sixties. This culminated in the building of the Jubilee Bridge in the eighteen eighties to take the place of an ancient timber bridge. The village is just as favoured today as a coastal resort, with both the South Beach and North Beach being peppered with camping and caravan sites.

The shorelines at Heacham are set upon the easterly shoreline of The Wash, as a consequence it's one of the only beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets are visible over the sea instead of over the land.

Historical Past of Heacham: It's in all probability around 5,000 yrs since the earliest human settlements took place in the region surrounding Heacham, the discovery of Bronze Age and Neolithic relics, show evidence of this fact. Habitation continued in the area throughout the Iron Age and into the Roman period, even though it was likely not until the fifth century when the first real village was founded there. The name is perhaps derived from the name of a local Lord during the twelfth century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, although there isn't any compelling evidence of this. Still another possibility is that the name is taken from the nearby River Hitch.

Documented in the Domesday Book of 1086 as being within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at that moment consisted of 143 households (making it pretty sizeable for this time) and the manor was governed by William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest of 1066 this area was ruled by a pair of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was subsequently under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, right until following the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The eldest remaining structure in Heacham is the Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, built in Norman style and was completed in twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is believe it or not even older than the church itself, dating from approximately eleven hundred, making it one of the most ancient bells still surviving in England. Heacham's village sign together with a tablet inside the church record the historic ties with Pocahontas, the red indian who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas was just twenty two when she died three years later, but she left behind a son, Tom, he later went back to America. Heacham Hall survived for many years but was ultimately destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in the village with a partnership being set up involving local nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, to develop the growing and distilling of lavender and related merchandise. A few years later there would be over 100 acres under cultivation. Since those early beginnings the company has expanded considerably, and fresh new types have been produced. Lavender is these days exported all throughout the world.
