A coastal village and well known vacation destination with some excellent beaches, Heacham is found in the county of Norfolk, between the resort of Hunstanton and the large port and town of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a resident population of about 5,000 people and is probably most famous for its historic links with the Indian native Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco merchant, who originated in Heacham. The village is also well regarded for its lavender fields, farmed here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to get fashionable as a tourist resort in the 19th century, after the arrival of the railway line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the eighteen sixties. That also led to the building of the Jubilee Bridge in the eighteen eighties to take the place of the olden wood bridge. Heacham continues to be popular nowadays as a beach resort, with both North Beach and South Beach being replete with caravan parks.

The beach areas in this area are placed on the eastern shoreline of The Wash, meaning it is one of only a handful of beaches in eastern England where the sun sets over the sea rather than over the land.

Heacham's Historic Past: It is quite likely over five thousand years since the first human settlements materialized in the vicinity around Heacham, the unearthing of Neolithic and Bronze Age artefacts, shows evidence of that. Human settlement continued there all through the Iron Age and into Roman times, while it was more than likely not till the 5th century that the earliest real village was established there. The name of the village is said to be taken from the title of a local Lord in the 12th century, Geoffrey de Hecham, although there is no strong evidence that this is the truth. An additional explanation is that the name is taken from the nearby River Hitch.

Noted in the 1086 Domesday Book to be included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham then had one hundred and forty three households (rather large for this period) and the manor belonged to William of Warenne. At the time of the Norman Conquest of 1066 the neighbourhood was controlled by a couple of 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 oldest remaining structure in the village is the Saint Mary the Virgin Parish Church, built in the Norman style and was built in 1230, a bell in the tower is in fact still older, dating from around eleven hundred, making it one of the oldest bells still surviving in England. The village sign together with a tablet inside the church record the historic ties with the red indian, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only 22 when she passed away 3 years later, but she left a son called Tom, he subsequently returned to America. Heacham Hall endured for centuries but was destroyed by fire in 1941.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in Heacham with a partnership being set up between local nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and local landowner named Francis Dusgate, with the aim of growing and distilling of lavender and associated merchandise. In 1936 there would be 100 acres covered in lavender plants. Ever since these beginnings the business has expanded enormously, and fresh new types have been reared. Lavender is today sold all over the world.
