A village and popular holiday destination beside some great beaches, Heacham can be found in the county of Norfolk, in between the holiday resort of Hunstanton and the town and port of Kings Lynn. The village has a resident population of roughly 5,000 people and is possibly best known for its historic ties with the native Indian Pocahontas, who married a tobacco planter called John Rolfe, who originated in Heacham. The village is additionally known for its fields of lavender, nurtured by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to the area in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to be known as a beach resort in the nineteenth century, mainly because of the coming of the rail line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton in the early 1860s. This also led to the Jubilee Bridge being constructed in the 1880's taking the place of the older wooden bridge. The village is just as favoured these days as a coastal resort, with both the South and North Beach lined with camping and caravan sites.

The beaches in this area are placed on the eastern banks of The Wash, as a consequence it's one of very few beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea rather than over the land.

The History of Heacham: It is more than likely approximately 5 millenia since the first settlers showed up in the vicinity near Heacham, the uncovering of Bronze Age and Neolithic relics, show evidence of that. Habitation remained in the area through the Iron Age and into Roman times, but it was in all likelihood not until the 5th century that the earliest true village was founded there. The name "Heacham" is supposed to be taken from the name of a Norman Lord during the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, though there is not any strong evidence that this is a fact. Yet another thought it was named after the close by River Hitch.

Noted in the Domesday Book of 1086 as being in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that time consisted of one hundred and forty three households (making it quite big for this time) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest the area was overseen by 2 Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was thereafter governed by Cluniac Monks, until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The eldest surviving structure in Heacham is the Saint Mary the Virgin Church, which was built in the Norman style and was completed in twelve thirty, one of its bells is actually still older than the church itself, dating from roughly eleven hundred, one of the most ancient bells still surviving in England. The village sign and a tablet inside the church remind the villagers of the historic ties with the red indian, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. She was only 22 when she died 3 years later, nevertheless she provided John with a son called Tom, he later returned to America. Heacham Hall survived for centuries but was destroyed by fire in 1941.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was founded in Heacham with a partnership being arranged between a local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of cultivating and processing of lavender and associated merchandise. By 1936 there would be 100 acres covered in lavender plants. Since then the business has grown considerably, and fresh types have been produced. The lavender is today exported all around the globe.
