A seaside village and well known holiday resort with some excellent beaches, Heacham is stationed in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the port and town of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a resident population of approximately 4,707 inhabitants and is possibly most widely known for its ties with the Indian native Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco grower, who came from Heacham. The village is furthermore widely known for its fields of lavender, nurtured here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to the village in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to become fashionable as a seaside resort in the mid-19th century, as a consequence of building of the train line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn in the early 1860s. This resulted in the erection of the Jubilee Bridge in the 1880's to replace an ancient timber bridge. The village is still popular nowadays as a beach resort, with both South and North Beaches being lined with caravan sites.

The seashores at this point are located upon the east coast of The Wash, which means it's one of the only beaches in eastern England where the sun sets over the sea rather than over the land.

Heacham's Historical Background: It is most certainly around five millenia since the earliest human settlements appeared in the area surrounding Heacham, and the unearthing of Neolithic and Bronze Age relics, show evidence of that. Habitation continued there all through the Iron Age and into Roman times, however it was in all likelihood not till the fifth century when the first real village was established there. The name "Heacham" is perhaps derived from the title of a Lord of the Manor during the 12th century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any strong evidence that this is a fact. Still another possibility is that the name was taken from the local River Hitch.

Listed in the Domesday Book of 1086 as being in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at that stage was made up of 143 households (making it pretty large for the times) and the Lord of the Manor was William of Warenne. At the time of the Norman Conquest of 1066 Heacham was ruled by 2 Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was subsequently under the control of Cluniac Monks, until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The oldest surviving structure in the village is the Church of St Mary the Virgin, which is built in Norman style and is dated 1230, a bell in the tower is in truth still older, dating from approximately 1100, meaning it is one of the earliest bells still surviving in England. Heacham's village sign and also a tablet within the church record the historic links with Pocahontas, the red indian who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas was just 22 when she passed away 3 years later, though she produced a son named Tom, he later went back to America. Heacham Hall survived for centuries but was eventually destroyed by fire in the 1940s.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in Heacham with a partnership being created involving nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, with the objective of growing and distilling of lavender and related products. By 1936 there was destined to be a hundred acres being cultivated. Since then the company has expanded greatly, and different varieties have been bred. The lavender is now exported all throughout the world.
