A village and well known holiday resort with some fine beaches, Heacham is found in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the resort of Hunstanton and the town and port of King's Lynn. The village has a populace of about 4,707 occupants and is perhaps most commonly known for its ties with the Indian native Pocahontas, who married a tobacco merchant called John Rolfe, who came from Heacham. The area is also known for its lavender fields, cultivated here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to be popular as a beach resort in the nineteenth century, following the establishing of the rail line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn in the 1860s. This also led to the building of the Jubilee Bridge in the 1880's to replace an old wooden bridge. The area is still well-liked nowadays as a beach resort, with both South Beach and North Beach being peppered with caravan sites.

The beaches at Heacham are located upon the easterly coast of The Wash, this means it's one of very few beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets are visible over the sea and not over the land.

A History of Heacham Norfolk: It is perhaps more than 5,000 years since the earliest settlements appeared in the area surrounding Heacham, the unearthing of Bronze Age and Neolithic artifacts, show evidence of that. Human settlement continued there through the Iron Age and into Roman times, though it was perhaps not till the fifth century that the earliest real village was established there. The name is supposed to be taken from the title of a local Lord of the Manor during the 12th century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any solid evidence of this. A second thought is that the name is taken from the nearby River Hitch.

Reported in the Domesday Book to be part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at this stage had 143 households (quite substantial for the times) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. At the time of the Norman Conquest of 1066 the village was controlled by 2 Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was then governed by a group of Cluniac Monks, until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The eldest surviving building in Heacham is the Parish Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, which was built in Norman style and is dated 1230, a bell in the tower is in fact still earlier, dating from roughly 1100, meaning it is one of the oldest bells still existing in England. Heacham's village sign as well as a tablet within the church recall the historic links with the red indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only twenty two when she died 3 years later, however she gave birth to a son, Tom, he later on went back to America. Heacham Hall survived for centuries but was destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in Heacham with a partnership being created involving nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, to develop the growing and distilling of lavender and related products. 4 years later there would be 100 acres covered in lavender plants. Since then the company has grown considerably, and fresh varieties have been nurtured. Lavender is today exported all over the world.
