A coastal village and popular holiday destination with some great beaches, Heacham can be found in the county of Norfolk, between the resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large port and town of Kings Lynn. The village has a populace of around four thousand seven hundred inhabitants and is possibly most commonly known for its historic connections with the Indian native Pocahontas, who married a tobacco grower called John Rolfe, who was born in Heacham. The area is furthermore widely known for its lavender fields, nurtured by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to the village in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to get fashionable as a sea side resort in the 19th century, with the arrival of the railway line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the eighteen sixties. This also led to the Jubilee Bridge being erected in 1887 taking the place of an older timber bridge. The village continues to be favoured today as a holiday resort, with both South Beach and North Beach peppered with caravan sites.

The seashores at this point are placed on the easterly banks of The Wash, this means it's one of very few beaches in the east of England where sunsets are visible over the sea and not over the land.

Heacham's History: It's possibly roughly 5,000 yrs since the first human settlers turned up in the vicinity around Heacham, the unearthing of Neolithic and Bronze Age artefacts, shows evidence of this fact. Human settlement remained in the area thru the Iron Age and into Roman times, even though it was most probably not until the 5th century when the earliest proper village was established there. The name is quite possibly taken from the title of a local Norman Lord during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any firm evidence that this is the truth. A further idea is that the name derives from the close by River Hitch.

Noted in the 1086 Domesday Book as being within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village then was made up of 143 households (making it fairly large for the period) and the manor belonged to William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest (1066) the neighborhood was controlled by a couple of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was subsequently controlled by a group of Cluniac Monks, right until after the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The oldest remaining building in Heacham is the St Mary the Virgin Parish Church, which is built in Norman style and is dated 1230, one of its bells is in truth still earlier than this, dating from about 1100, meaning it is one of the oldest bells still surviving in England. Heacham's village sign as well as a tablet within the church outline the historic ties with the indian princess, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas was only twenty two when she died three years later, still she gave birth to a son called Tom, who subsequently returned to America. Heacham Hall endured for many years but was eventually destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in the village with a partnership being set up involving nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner called Francis Dusgate, to develop the cultivating and processing of lavender and associated merchandise. A few years later there was destined to be one hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Since then the company has expanded dramatically, and fresh varieties have been propagated. Lavender is today sold all throughout the world.
