A village and well loved vacation resort beside some wonderful beaches, Heacham is found in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the town of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large town and port of King's Lynn. The village has a populace of approximately four thousand seven hundred inhabitants and is possibly most famous for its association with the Indian Pocahontas, who married a tobacco merchant called John Rolfe, who was born in Heacham. The area is additionally known for its fields of lavender, harvested here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to the village in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to get fashionable as a holiday resort in the time of the Victorians, right after the opening of the rail line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton in the 1860s. This culminated in the Jubilee Bridge being erected in 1887 in order to replace the outmoded wooden bridge. The village still is well-liked today as a beach resort, with both North Beach and South Beach peppered with caravan parks.

The beach areas in this area are placed on the east coast of The Wash, which means it is one of the rare beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea as opposed to over the land.

Historical Background of Heacham: It is perhaps more than 5 millenia since the earliest human settlements took place in the vicinity near Heacham, and the unearthing of Neolithic and Bronze Age artefacts, shows evidence of that. Settlement remained in the area through the Iron Age and into the Roman era, even though it was quite likely not until the fifth century when the first proper village was founded there. The name is reported to be derived from the name of a Lord of the Manor in the twelfth century, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any strong evidence that this is true. An additional thought is that the name originates from the nearby River Hitch.

Recognized in the Domesday Book as being part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at that point in time contained one hundred and forty three households (pretty substantial for this time) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest this area was overseen by a pair of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was afterwards governed by Cluniac Monks, right until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The oldest remaining building in the village is the St Mary the Virgin Parish Church, built in the Norman style and is dated 1230, one of its bells is believe it or not even earlier, dating from around 1100, making it one of the most ancient bells still in existence in England. Heacham's village sign as well as a tablet in the church recount the famous links with Pocahontas, the indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. She was only twenty two when she died three years later, but she left a son named Tom, he subsequently went back to America. Heacham Hall survived for centuries but was eventually destroyed by fire in 1941.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in the village with a partnership being arranged involving nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner called Francis Dusgate, with the aim of harvesting and processing of lavender and related merchandise. A few years later there was destined to be one hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Since those early beginnings the business has evolved enormously, and fresh varieties have been propagated. Lavender is currently exported all around the world.
