A coastal village and well loved holiday destination having some fine beaches, Heacham is stationed in the county of Norfolk, in between the resort of Hunstanton and the large port and town of King's Lynn. Heacham has a populace of about four thousand seven hundred people and is possibly most famous for its ties with the native Indian Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco planter, who came from Heacham. Heacham is also widely known for its fields of lavender, nurtured by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to be known as a seaside resort in the time of the Victorians, due to the coming of the train line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the early 1860s. That culminated in the Jubilee Bridge being constructed in eighteen eighty seven to take the place of the outmoded wooden bridge. The area is still well-liked these days as a beach resort, with both South and North Beach being dotted with caravan sites.

The seashores at this point are situated on the eastern coast of The Wash, therefore it's one of the rare beaches in the east of England where the sun sets over the sea and not over the land.

The Story of Heacham Norfolk: It is more than likely over five thousand years since the 1st human settlements took place in the area close to Heacham, the uncovering of Bronze Age and Neolithic artifacts, gives evidence of this fact. Habitation remained in the area thru the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, but it was probably not till the 5th century that the earliest real village was founded there. The name "Heacham" is supposed to be taken from the name of a local Lord during the 12th century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is no firm evidence that this is true. Still another thought is that the name is derived from the nearby River Hitch.

Recorded in the Domesday Book as being included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village in those days supported 143 households (quite large for the times) and the manor belonged to William of Warenne. Prior to the 1066 Norman Conquest this area was ruled by two Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was subsequently under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The most ancient surviving structure in the village is the Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, built in the Norman style and dates from twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is believe it or not even earlier, dating from roughly eleven hundred, making it one of the earliest bells still in existence in England. Heacham's village sign and also a tablet inside the church remind visitors of the historic ties with the red indian, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas was only twenty two when she passed away three years later, but she gave birth to a son, Tom, who later went back to America. The hall survived for centuries but was destroyed by fire in 1941.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in the village with a partnership being arranged between a local nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, with the goal of growing and processing of lavender and related products. A few years later there would be one hundred acres being cultivated. Since these beginnings the business has evolved appreciably, and fresh types have been bred. Lavender is now sold all over the world.
