St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to be fashionable as a holiday resort in Victorian times, a result of the opening of the rail line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton in the early eighteen sixties. That culminated in the erection of the Jubilee Bridge in 1887 to take the place of the older timber bridge.

Registered in the Domesday Book (1086) to be part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village in those days supported one hundred and forty three households (rather sizeable for this period) and the manor was controlled by William of Warenne. At the time of the 1066 Norman Conquest the village was controlled by two Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was later under the control of Cluniac Monks, until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

Heacham's village sign and also a tablet within the church recall the famous links with the red indian, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas was just 22 when she passed away 3 years later, nevertheless she left behind a son, Tom, he later returned to America. Heacham Hall endured for many years but was destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.
