A village and popular holiday resort alongside some fine beaches, Heacham is set in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the town of Hunstanton and the port and town of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a populace of roughly 4,707 occupants and is probably most famous for its historic connections with the Indian Pocahontas, who married a tobacco grower called John Rolfe, who originated in Heacham. The village is also well regarded for its fields of lavender, harvested by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to be popular as a holiday resort in the nineteenth century, after the building of the rail line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton at the beginning of the 1860s. That culminated in the building of the Jubilee Bridge in the 1880's taking the place of an old wooden bridge. The village remains favoured these days as a seaside resort, with both the North and South Beaches being dotted with camping and caravan parks.

The seashores at Heacham are set on the easterly shores of The Wash, meaning it is one of the rare beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets can be seen over the sea as opposed to over the land.

History of Heacham: It's certainly approximately five millenia since the 1st human settlers showed up in the region close to Heacham, the uncovering of Bronze Age and Neolithic artefacts, gives evidence of that. Habitation persisted in the area thru the Iron Age and into the Roman period, while it was in all likelihood not till the 5th century that the 1st true village was established there. The name "Heacham" is perhaps taken from the title of a Lord of the Manor in the twelfth century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is no solid evidence that this is the truth. Still another possibility it was named after the nearby River Hitch.

Noted down in the 1086 Domesday Book to be within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village during that time included 143 households (making it pretty large for this period) and the manor was controlled by William of Warenne. Before the Norman Conquest the neighbourhood was ruled by 2 Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was then under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, right until following the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The most ancient existing building in the village is the Saint Mary the Virgin Parish Church, which was built in the Norman style and is dated twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is believe it or not even earlier than the church itself, dating from about 1100, one of the oldest bells still existing in England. The village sign plus a tablet within the church recall the famous ties with the red indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. She was just twenty two when she passed away 3 years later, nonetheless she provided John with a son, Tom, who later on returned to America. Heacham Hall survived for centuries but was destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in the village with a partnership being arranged between nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, with the objective of growing and processing of lavender and associated products. A few years later there would be over a hundred acres being cultivated. Ever since then the company has evolved greatly, and fresh varieties have been propagated. The lavender is these days exported all around the globe.
