Habitation persisted there all through the Iron Age and into Roman times, though it was probably not till the fifth century when the first genuine village was founded there. The name of the village is perhaps derived from the name of a Norman Lord during the twelfth century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, although there is not any compelling evidence of this.

It was thereafter under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, right until after the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The eldest surviving building in the village is the Parish Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, which was built in the Norman style and dates from 1230, one of its bells is in fact still earlier than this, dating from approximately 1100, making it one of the earliest bells still in existence in England. The village sign together with a tablet inside the church remind the villagers of the famous links with the red indian princess, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. She was only 22 when she passed away 3 years later, nonetheless she left a son called Tom, he subsequently returned to America. Heacham Hall endured for centuries but was destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.
