A village and popular vacation destination beside some exceptional beaches, Heacham is found in the county of Norfolk, in between the town of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large port and town of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a populace of about 4,700 occupants and is perhaps most commonly known for its connection with the Indian Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco merchant, who originated in Heacham. The village is furthermore reputed for its lavender fields, harvested here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to Heacham in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to become fashionable as a seaside resort in Victorian times, because of the arrival of the railway line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton in the eighteen sixties. That resulted in the construction of the Jubilee Bridge in the eighteen eighties in order to replace the older wooden bridge. Heacham remains well-liked today as a holiday resort, with both the North and South Beach peppered with caravan parks.

The beaches here are placed on the eastern coast of The Wash, meaning it is one of only a handful of beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets are visible over the sea instead of over the land.

Historic Past of Heacham: It is in all likelihood over 5 millenia since the earliest human settlers colonized in the vicinity close to Heacham, the finding of Bronze Age and Neolithic relics, shows evidence of this. Human settlement persisted there all through the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, however it was quite likely not until the 5th century that the earliest real village was founded there. The name is quite possibly derived from the title of a Lord of the Manor during the twelfth century, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there isn't any strong evidence of this. One more thought is, the name originates from the close by River Hitch.

Registered in the Domesday Book as being included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at this stage comprised 143 households (quite sizeable for the period) and the Lord of the Manor was William of Warenne. Before the Norman Conquest this area was controlled by 2 Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was then under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, until following the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The most ancient existing building in Heacham is the St Mary the Virgin Church, built in the Norman style and was completed in 1230, a bell in the tower is actually even older, dating from roughly 1100, one of the most ancient bells still existing in England. Heacham's village sign together with a tablet in the church tell of the famous ties with Pocahontas, the red indian who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas was only 22 when she passed away three years later, still she produced a son, Tom, who subsequently returned to America. The hall survived for centuries but was destroyed by fire in 1941.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in the village with a partnership being created involving a local nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and a landowner named Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of growing and processing of lavender and related products. In 1936 there would be over one hundred acres under cultivation. Ever since then the company has evolved enormously, and new varieties have been reared. Lavender is today sold all throughout the world.
