A village and popular vacation destination alongside some fine beaches, Heacham is located in the county of Norfolk, in between the holiday resort of Hunstanton and the town and port of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a populace of around 5,000 occupants and is probably most widely known for its links with the Indian Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco planter, who originated from Heacham. The village is furthermore widely known for its lavender fields, harvested by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to the area in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to become known as a coastal resort in Victorian times, with the building of the railway line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the eighteen sixties. This also led to the building of the Jubilee Bridge in the eighteen eighties replacing an ancient wood bridge. The village still is well-liked nowadays as a beach resort, with both South Beach and North Beach being lined with camping and caravan parks.

The beaches at this point are set upon the eastern shores of The Wash, meaning it is one of very few beaches in the east of England where the sun sets over the sea rather than over the land.

Heacham's Historic Past: It is likely around 5 millenia since the 1st settlements appeared in the area near Heacham, and the finding of Bronze Age and Neolithic artefacts, show evidence of that. Settlement remained in the area throughout the Iron Age and into Roman times, although it was probably not till the fifth century when the first real village was established there. The name "Heacham" is possibly taken from the name of a Lord of the Manor in the twelfth century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, although there is not any compelling evidence that this is true. One additional theory is that the name derives from the close by River Hitch.

Registered in the 1086 Domesday Book as being in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that moment was made up of 143 households (making it quite large for the time) and the manor came under the control of William of Warenne. Prior to the Norman Conquest the neighbourhood was overseen by a pair of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was thereafter governed by a group of Cluniac Monks, until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The oldest existing structure in the village is the Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, built in Norman style and is dated twelve thirty, one of its bells is actually even earlier, dating from roughly eleven hundred, one of the oldest bells still in existence in England. Heacham's village sign together with a tablet within the church remind the villagers of the famous ties with Pocahontas, the red indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was just 22 when she died three years later, but she gave birth to a son, Tom, who eventually went back to America. Heacham Hall survived for centuries but was ultimately destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in the village with a partnership being created involving a local nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and a landowner named Francis Dusgate, with the aim of producing and processing of lavender and related merchandise. 4 years later there were one hundred acres being cultivated. Ever since then the business has evolved dramatically, and newer types have been reared. Lavender is these days exported all over the world.
