A village and popular vacation destination with some wonderful beaches, Heacham is situated in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large port and town of King's Lynn. The village has a population of about four thousand seven hundred people and is perhaps best known for its association with the Indian native Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco planter, who was born in Heacham. The area is furthermore reputed for its fields of lavender, nurtured here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to get well liked as a coastal resort in the nineteenth century, because of the coming of the train line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton in the 1860s. That culminated in the erection of the Jubilee Bridge in 1887 to take the place of an olden timber bridge. The area remains well-liked these days as a beach resort, with both South Beach and North Beach being dotted with caravan and camping sites.

The seashores at this point are placed upon the easterly coast of The Wash, meaning it is one of the rare beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets can be seen over the sea and not over the land.

History of Heacham: It's possibly around 5,000 yrs since the first human settlements manifested in the region close to Heacham, the finding of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, shows evidence of that. Human settlement remained there throughout the Iron Age and into the Roman period, but it was quite possibly not until the fifth century when the first genuine village was established there. The name is supposed to be taken from the title of a Lord of the Manor in the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is no firm evidence that this is true. Still another possibility is that the name is derived from the close by River Hitch.

Registered in the Domesday Book of 1086 to be part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that point in time was made up of 143 households (making it pretty large for this time) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. Prior to the Norman Conquest (1066) the region was ruled by a couple of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was subsequently governed by a group of Cluniac Monks, right up until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, at which time the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The earliest existing building in Heacham is the Church of St Mary the Virgin, built in Norman style and was built in 1230, a bell in the tower is in fact still older than the church itself, dating from about eleven hundred, meaning it is one of the most ancient bells still in existence in England. Heacham's village sign along with a tablet in the church recall the historic links with Pocahontas, the indian princess who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas was only twenty two when she died 3 years later, though she left a son, Tom, who subsequently returned to America. The hall endured for centuries but was finally destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in Heacham with a partnership being set up involving nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner called Francis Dusgate, to develop the cultivating and distilling of lavender and related products. In 1936 there would be over 100 acres covered in lavender plants. Ever since those early beginnings the company has grown substantially, and new varieties have been nurtured. The lavender is currently exported all around the world.
