A village and well known vacation resort with some great beaches, Heacham is found in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the town and port of King's Lynn. Heacham has a resident population of around 5,000 inhabitants and is probably most famous for its links with the Indian native Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco merchant, who was born in Heacham. The area is also reputed for its lavender fields, harvested here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to the village in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to become fashionable as a beach resort in the nineteenth century, with the building of the train line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn in the eighteen sixties. This also led to the construction of the Jubilee Bridge in the eighteen eighties replacing the ancient wooden bridge. The area still is well loved these days as a beach resort, with both the North and South Beach being peppered with caravan and camping parks.

The shorelines at Heacham are placed on the east shores of The Wash, as a consequence it's one of very few beaches in eastern England where sunsets can be seen over the sea rather than over the land.

Heacham's Historical Background: It is undoubtedly over 5,000 yrs since the earliest human settlements took place in the region near Heacham, and the unearthing of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, shows evidence of this. Habitation remained in the area all through the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, while it was in all probability not till the 5th century that the 1st true village was set up there. The name of the village is claimed to be taken from the title of a Norman Lord during the 12th century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any compelling evidence of this. An extra possibility is, the name derives from the nearby River Hitch.

Documented in the Domesday Book (1086) to be included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that stage had one hundred and forty three households (making it rather large for the period) and the Lord of the Manor was William of Warenne. Prior to the Norman Conquest of 1066 the neighborhood was overseen by a couple of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was later under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The oldest surviving building in the village is the Saint Mary the Virgin Church, built in the Norman style and dates from twelve thirty, one of its bells is believe it or not still older, dating from approximately 1100, one of the oldest bells still surviving in England. Heacham's village sign and also a tablet within the church record the famous links with the indian princess, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. She was just twenty two when she died 3 years later, though she gave birth to a son named Tom, he later on returned to America. The hall survived for many years but was destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in Heacham with a partnership being set up involving local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of producing and distilling of lavender and related products. A few years later there would be a hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Ever since these beginnings the enterprise has expanded significantly, and newer varieties have been bred. Lavender is these days exported all around the world.
