St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to get known as a tourist resort in the nineteenth century, mainly because of the arrival of the train line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton at the start of the eighteen sixties.

Heacham's Historical Background: It's most likely roughly 5 millenia since the first human settlements appeared in the vicinity around Heacham, and the finding of Bronze Age and Neolithic artefacts, gives evidence of that. Human settlement continued there thru the Iron Age and into the Roman era, although it was most probably not till the fifth century when the 1st genuine village was established there. The name is perhaps derived from the title of a local Lord of the Manor during the 12th century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, however there is not any strong evidence of this. A different explanation is that the name derives from the close by River Hitch.

Registered in the Domesday Book (1086) to be in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham then was made up of one hundred and forty three households (making it pretty substantial for this period) and the manor belonged to William of Warenne. Prior to the Norman Conquest (1066) the village was controlled by two Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was subsequently under the control of Cluniac Monks, right until after the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The oldest existing building in the village is the Church of St Mary the Virgin, which was built in Norman style and was completed in 1230, a bell in the tower is believe it or not even older than the church itself, dating from approximately eleven hundred, one of the most ancient bells still existing in England. Heacham's village sign along with a tablet in the church record the famous links with Pocahontas, the red indian princess who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was just twenty two when she died three years later, nonetheless she gave birth to a son, Tom, he later on returned to America. The hall survived for many years but was eventually destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was founded in the village with a partnership being created involving local nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, with the goal of harvesting and processing of lavender and associated merchandise.
