A coastal village and well loved vacation resort with some superb beaches, Heacham is situated in the county of Norfolk, between the town of Hunstanton and the port and town of King's Lynn. Heacham has a resident population of about 5,000 inhabitants and is perhaps best known for its association with the Indian native Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco merchant, who originated from Heacham. The area is furthermore widely known for its fields of lavender, harvested here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to Heacham in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to get fashionable as a coastal resort in Victorian times, with the arrival of the rail line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton at the start of the eighteen sixties. That resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being erected in 1887 in order to replace the older wood bridge. The village is still favoured nowadays as a holiday resort, with both North and South Beach being dotted with caravan sites.

The shorelines at this point are situated on the eastern shores of The Wash, which means it's one of only a handful of beaches in eastern England where sunsets are visible over the sea instead of over the land.

Heacham's Historic Past: It's quite likely roughly 5,000 years since the 1st human settlers emerged in the region near Heacham, and the discovery of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, show evidence of this. Human settlement remained in the area thru the Iron Age and into the Roman period, though it was possibly not until the fifth century that the earliest real village was established there. The name "Heacham" is quite possibly derived from the name of a local Lord of the Manor during the twelfth century, Geoffrey de Hecham, although there is not any firm evidence that this is the truth. The other possibility it was named after the nearby River Hitch.

Registered in the Domesday Book to be included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that stage consisted of one hundred and forty three households (rather sizeable for this time) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. Before the 1066 Norman Conquest the village was overseen by 2 Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was later governed by a group of Cluniac Monks, right until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The oldest remaining building in Heacham is the Saint Mary the Virgin Parish Church, built in the Norman style and was completed in twelve thirty, one of its bells is in truth even earlier, dating from about 1100, meaning it is one of the most ancient bells still surviving in England. Heacham's village sign and also a tablet in the church remind visitors of the historic ties with Pocahontas, the red indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only 22 when she passed away three years later, but she left behind a son, Tom, who subsequently went back to America. Heacham Hall endured for many years but was eventually destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in the village with a partnership being set up involving nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, to develop the growing and distilling of lavender and associated products. A few years later there would be 100 acres being cultivated. Ever since then the venture has evolved substantially, and fresh types have been bred. Lavender is these days exported all around the world.
