A seaside village and popular holiday resort featuring some terrific beaches, Heacham is situated in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the holiday resort of Hunstanton and the port and town of King's Lynn. Heacham has a population of about 4,707 occupants and is perhaps most commonly known for its connection with the Indian Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco planter, who came from Heacham. The area is also known for its fields of lavender, farmed here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to become well liked as a seaside resort in in the mid-nineteenth century, just after the establishing of the rail line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the 1860s. That also led to the building of the Jubilee Bridge in 1887 replacing an oudated timber bridge. The village still is well loved these days as a tourist resort, with both South and North Beach being lined with caravan sites.

The beaches in this area are placed on the easterly coast of The Wash, as a consequence it is one of few beaches in eastern England where the sun sets over the sea and not over the land.

The History of Heacham Norfolk: It is perhaps over 5 millenia since the 1st human settlers colonized in the region surrounding Heacham, the discovery of Neolithic and Bronze Age relics, shows evidence of that. Settlement persisted there thru the Iron Age and into the Roman era, but it was probably not until the fifth century when the earliest actual village was set up there. The name "Heacham" is quite possibly derived from the name of a local Lord during the 12th century, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is no strong evidence of this. Another thought it was named after the nearby River Hitch.

Described in the Domesday Book of 1086 to be in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village then included one hundred and forty three households (making it fairly substantial for the time) and the manor belonged to William of Warenne. Before the Norman Conquest (1066) this area was controlled by two Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was afterwards under the control of Cluniac Monks, right until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The oldest surviving building in Heacham is the Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, which was built in the Norman style and is dated twelve thirty, one of its bells is in truth still earlier than this, dating from around eleven hundred, meaning it is one of the earliest bells still surviving in England. The village sign and a tablet in the church tell of the famous ties with the red indian, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. She was just twenty two when she died three years later, nonetheless she gave birth to a son, Tom, he eventually returned to America. The hall survived for centuries but was ultimately destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in Heacham with a partnership being set up involving a local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner called Francis Dusgate, to develop the producing and processing of lavender and associated products. A few years later there would be 100 acres being cultivated. Since these beginnings the enterprise has evolved significantly, and brand new types have been produced. Lavender is nowadays exported all around the world.
