A village and well loved holiday destination boasting some superb beaches, Heacham is found in the county of Norfolk, in between the holiday resort of Hunstanton and the large port and town of King's Lynn. The village has a resident population of approximately 4,700 inhabitants and is perhaps best known for its connection with the native Indian Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco merchant, who originated in Heacham. Heacham is additionally widely known for its fields of lavender, nurtured here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to become well liked as a coastal resort in the mid-19th century, just after the establishing of the railway line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton in the early 1860s. This culminated in the erection of the Jubilee Bridge in 1887 in order to replace an old wood bridge. The area is still popular these days as a coastal resort, with both the South and North Beaches dotted with caravan sites.

The shorelines at Heacham are placed upon the easterly banks of The Wash, this means that it's one of the rare beaches in eastern England where sunsets are visible over the sea instead of over the land.

Historic Past of Heacham: It is most likely roughly five millenia since the first settlers arrived in the vicinity surrounding Heacham, the finding of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, shows evidence of this. Settlement persisted there throughout the Iron Age and into the Roman period, though it was possibly not until the 5th century that the earliest actual village was established there. The name "Heacham" is possibly taken from the title of a local Lord in the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there isn't any reliable evidence that this is a fact. The other theory it was named after the local River Hitch.

Reported in the Domesday Book of 1086 as being within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village back then was made up of one hundred and forty three households (pretty substantial for the times) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. Up until the 1066 Norman Conquest the area was ruled by 2 Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was later under the control of Cluniac Monks, until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The most ancient remaining structure in Heacham is the Church of St Mary the Virgin, which was built in Norman style and was built in twelve thirty, one of its bells is in truth still earlier than the church itself, dating from approximately 1100, meaning it is one of the most ancient bells still existing in England. The village sign and also a tablet in the church record the historic links with Pocahontas, the indian princess who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was just 22 when she died 3 years later, though she left behind a son, Tom, he subsequently went back to America. Heacham Hall survived for many years but was finally destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was founded in Heacham with a partnership being created involving nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner called Francis Dusgate, with the aim of cultivating and distilling of lavender and related merchandise. In 1936 there would be a hundred acres being cultivated. Since those early times the company has evolved enormously, and new varieties have been bred. Lavender is now exported all over the world.
