A seaside village and popular vacation resort offering some fantastic beaches, Heacham can be found in the county of Norfolk, between the town of Hunstanton and the large town and port of King's Lynn. The village has a resident population of about 4,707 people and is probably most recognized for its association with the Indian native Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco merchant, who originated from Heacham. The area is additionally well known for its fields of lavender, nurtured here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to get popular as a seaside resort in the 19th century, due to the coming of the railway line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton in the early 1860s. That also led to the Jubilee Bridge being constructed in the 1880's taking the place of an ancient wooden bridge. The area is just as well loved today as a seaside resort, with both North Beach and South Beach peppered with caravan parks.

The beach areas in this area are located upon the easterly coast of The Wash, which means it's one of the few beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea as opposed to over the land.

Heacham's Historical Past: It's probably more than five millenia since the first human settlements appeared in the region near Heacham, and the discovery of Bronze Age and Neolithic artifacts, shows evidence of this fact. Settlement remained in the area all through the Iron Age and into Roman times, but it was likely not till the 5th century when the first true village was founded there. The name "Heacham" is reported to be derived from the name of a Lord of the Manor during the twelfth century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, however there is no solid evidence that this is a fact. The other possibility is, the name is taken from the close by River Hitch.

Described in the Domesday Book of 1086 to be part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that time comprised 143 households (making it quite substantial for the period) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. Before the Norman Conquest the village was ruled by a pair of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was subsequently controlled by a group of Cluniac Monks, right until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The most ancient existing building in the village is the St Mary the Virgin Church, built in the Norman style and was built in 1230, one of its bells is believe it or not even older, dating from roughly eleven hundred, meaning it is one of the most ancient bells still in existence in England. The village sign and a tablet within the church remind the villagers of the historic ties with the indian princess, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only twenty two when she died 3 years later, nevertheless she gave birth to a son named Tom, who later on returned to America. Heacham Hall survived for many years but was destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in Heacham with a partnership being set up involving a local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of producing and distilling of lavender and related merchandise. By 1936 there was destined to be a hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Ever since those early beginnings the business has grown appreciably, and newer varieties have been raised. Lavender is nowadays sold all around the world.
