A seaside village and well loved vacation resort beside some wonderful beaches, Heacham can be found in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the resort of Hunstanton and the port and town of King's Lynn. The village has a resident population of around 5,000 people and is possibly most commonly known for its association with the native Indian Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco grower, who originated in Heacham. The village is also well regarded for its lavender fields, cultivated here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to the village in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to be well liked as a holiday resort in Victorian times, simply because of the opening of the rail line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the eighteen sixties. This also led to the building of the Jubilee Bridge in the 1880's to take the place of an olden wood bridge. The village remains well loved nowadays as a beach resort, with both North and South Beach dotted with caravan sites.

The beaches at this point are placed on the east shoreline of The Wash, therefore it's one of few beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea rather than over the land.

Heacham's Historical Past: It's more than likely around 5,000 years since the first settlers colonized in the vicinity around Heacham, the finding of Neolithic and Bronze Age relics, gives evidence of that. Habitation persisted in the area through the Iron Age and into the Roman period, even though it was in all probability not until the fifth century when the first actual village was set up there. The name "Heacham" is perhaps taken from the name of a Norman Lord during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any strong evidence that this is true. An additional theory it was named after the close by River Hitch.

Listed in the 1086 Domesday Book as being included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at this stage was made up of one hundred and forty three households (making it quite sizeable for the period) and the manor was controlled by William of Warenne. Prior to the Norman Conquest (1066) this area was ruled by 2 Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was thereafter governed by Cluniac Monks, right up until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The most ancient existing building in Heacham is the St Mary the Virgin Church, built in the Norman style and dates from twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is actually still older than the church itself, dating from roughly 1100, one of the earliest bells still surviving in England. The village sign together with a tablet in the church remind visitors of the famous ties with the red indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only twenty two when she passed away 3 years later, still she provided John with a son named Tom, he eventually went back to America. Heacham Hall survived for centuries but was destroyed by fire in the 1940s.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in Heacham with a partnership being created involving nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of harvesting and distilling of lavender and related merchandise. A few years later there would be one hundred acres under cultivation. Since those early beginnings the venture has grown enormously, and fresh types have been nurtured. Lavender is these days sold all over the world.
