A village and well loved holiday destination with some fine beaches, Heacham is found in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the resort of Hunstanton and the large town and port of King's Lynn. The village has a population of around 5,000 inhabitants and is probably most famous for its link with the Indian native Pocahontas, who married a tobacco grower called John Rolfe, who was born in Heacham. The area is also well known for its fields of lavender, nurtured by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to the area in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to be popular as a coastal resort in the time of the Victorians, with the establishing of the rail line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn in the early 1860s. That culminated in the construction of the Jubilee Bridge in the eighteen eighties to replace the older timber bridge. Heacham is still well-liked nowadays as a tourist resort, with both the South Beach and North Beach being lined with caravan parks.

The seashores here are placed upon the eastern shoreline of The Wash, this means that it is one of the rare beaches in eastern England where the sun sets over the sea rather than over the land.

Heacham's History: It's quite likely more than 5 millenia since the first settlements materialized in the area around Heacham, the unearthing of Neolithic and Bronze Age artefacts, show evidence of this fact. Settlement remained there thru the Iron Age and into the Roman era, though it was probably not until the fifth century that the first genuine village was established there. The name of the village is believed to be derived from the name of a local Lord of the Manor in the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, though there is no solid evidence that this is true. One additional explanation it was named after the nearby River Hitch.

Recorded in the Domesday Book to be included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham back then consisted of one hundred and forty three households (rather substantial for the time) and the manor came under the control of William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest the neighbourhood was ruled by a pair of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was afterwards under the control of Cluniac Monks, right until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The earliest existing building in Heacham is the Church of St Mary the Virgin, which was built in Norman style and dates from 1230, a bell in the tower is actually even earlier than this, dating from about eleven hundred, making it one of the oldest bells still surviving in England. The village sign and also a tablet in the church remind the villagers of the famous links with Pocahontas, the red indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only 22 when she passed away 3 years later, still she provided John with a son called Tom, he subsequently returned to America. Heacham Hall survived for many years but was destroyed by fire in the 1940s.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in Heacham with a partnership being arranged involving local nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of growing and processing of lavender and associated merchandise. By 1936 there would be over 100 acres being cultivated. Ever since those early beginnings the company has evolved enormously, and unique varieties have been bred. The lavender is currently sold all throughout the world.
