A village and well known vacation destination with some wonderful beaches, Heacham is set in the county of Norfolk, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton and the large town and port of Kings Lynn. The village has a population of roughly 5,000 people and is possibly most famous for its ties with the Indian native Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco merchant, who originated in Heacham. The village is also reputed for its lavender fields, farmed by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to the area in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to be well liked as a coastal resort in the mid-19th century, a result of the arrival of the train line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton in the 1860s. This resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being built in 1887 replacing the old wooden bridge. The village continues to be well loved nowadays as a seaside resort, with both the South Beach and North Beach being lined with caravan and camping sites.

The seashores here are placed on the eastern shoreline of The Wash, this means that it's one of the rare beaches in the east of England where sunsets can be seen over the sea as opposed to over the land.

Historic Past of Heacham: It is in all likelihood over five thousand yrs since the 1st human settlements manifested in the area near Heacham, the uncovering of Neolithic and Bronze Age relics, gives evidence of this. Human settlement continued in the area thru the Iron Age and into the Roman era, but it was very likely not till the fifth century that the first proper village was set up there. The name is reported to be taken from the title of a Lord of the Manor during the twelfth century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is no reliable evidence that this is true. One additional idea it was named after the close by River Hitch.

Described in the Domesday Book to be in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham during those times was made up of 143 households (making it pretty large for the period) and the manor came under the control of William of Warenne. At the time of the Norman Conquest of 1066 the area was controlled by a pair of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was subsequently controlled by a group of Cluniac Monks, right until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The eldest surviving building in the village is the St Mary the Virgin Church, built in Norman style and is dated twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is actually even earlier than the church itself, dating from about eleven hundred, making it one of the earliest bells still surviving in England. The village sign and also a tablet within the church tell of the historic ties with Pocahontas, the red indian princess who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only twenty two when she passed away 3 years later, however she left a son called Tom, he eventually went back to America. Heacham Hall survived for centuries but was finally 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 local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, with the goal of cultivating and distilling of lavender and related products. By 1936 there would be 100 acres covered in lavender plants. Ever since these beginnings the enterprise has expanded enormously, and unique types have been raised. Lavender is currently sold all around the world.
