A village and popular holiday resort boasting some great beaches, Heacham can be found in the county of Norfolk, between the town of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large port and town of King's Lynn. Heacham has a populace of around four thousand seven hundred occupants and is perhaps most famous for its links with the Indian Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco grower, who was born in Heacham. Heacham is additionally reputed for its fields of lavender, harvested here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to be well liked as a holiday resort in the 19th century, after the establishing of the railway line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn in the eighteen sixties. This also led to the building of the Jubilee Bridge in 1887 taking the place of the ancient timber bridge. Heacham remains popular these days as a tourist resort, with both North and South Beaches lined with caravan parks.

The seashores at this point are placed on the east shoreline of The Wash, meaning it is one of the few beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets can be seen over the sea rather than over the land.

Heacham's Historic Past: It's most probably approximately 5 millenia since the initial settlers arrived in the region close to Heacham, and the unearthing of Bronze Age and Neolithic relics, shows evidence of that. Settlement remained in the area thru the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, whilst it was probably not until the fifth century that the earliest true village was founded there. The name of the village is possibly taken from the name of a Lord of the Manor in the 12th century, Geoffrey de Hecham, however there is no compelling evidence that this is the truth. A further thought it was named after the close by River Hitch.

Documented in the Domesday Book as being part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that point in time comprised one hundred and forty three households (making it rather big for the period) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. Before the 1066 Norman Conquest the region was ruled by 2 Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was thereafter controlled by Cluniac Monks, right until following the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The eldest existing building in Heacham is the Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, which was built in the Norman style and dates from twelve thirty, one of its bells is in fact still earlier, dating from about eleven hundred, one of the most ancient bells still existing in England. Heacham's village sign together with a tablet inside the church remind visitors of the historic links with Pocahontas, the indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was just 22 when she died 3 years later, though she gave birth to a son named Tom, he subsequently returned to America. The hall endured for many years but was ultimately destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in the village with a partnership being set up involving a local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner called Francis Dusgate, with the goal of harvesting and distilling of lavender and related merchandise. By 1936 there was destined to be a hundred acres under cultivation. Since then the company has evolved appreciably, and brand new types have been produced. Lavender is today exported all around the world.
