A village and well known vacation destination with some excellent beaches, Heacham is situated in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the resort of Hunstanton and the port and town of King's Lynn. The village has a populace of roughly four thousand seven hundred inhabitants and is perhaps best known for its links with the Indian native Pocahontas, who married a tobacco grower called John Rolfe, who came from Heacham. The area is furthermore widely known for its fields of lavender, grown here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to be well liked as a holiday resort in the nineteenth century, with the building of the rail line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn in the eighteen sixties. This resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being built in 1887 to replace an oudated wood bridge. The village continues to be well-liked these days as a tourist resort, with both South and North Beach lined with caravan parks.

The seashores at Heacham are placed upon the easterly coast of The Wash, which means it's one of few beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets can be seen over the sea instead of over the land.

Historical Past of Heacham: It's quite likely over five thousand years since the first settlements appeared in the area near Heacham, the unearthing of Bronze Age and Neolithic relics, gives evidence of that. Settlement persisted in the area throughout the Iron Age and into the Roman era, although it was in all probability not till the fifth century when the first true village was founded there. The name "Heacham" is said to be taken from the title of a local Lord of the Manor during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, though there is no firm evidence that this is true. Yet another thought it was named after the local River Hitch.

Documented in the Domesday Book (1086) as being part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham during that time supported one hundred and forty three households (pretty substantial for the times) and the Lord of the Manor was William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest (1066) the neighborhood was controlled by two Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was then controlled by Cluniac Monks, right until after the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The most ancient remaining building in the village is the Saint Mary the Virgin Parish Church, built in the Norman style and was built in twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is believe it or not still earlier than this, dating from around 1100, making it one of the most ancient bells still in existence in England. The village sign along with a tablet in the church tell of the historic links with Pocahontas, the red indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was just twenty two when she died 3 years later, though she left a son, Tom, who subsequently went back to America. Heacham Hall endured for centuries but was destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was founded in Heacham with a partnership being arranged between local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner called Francis Dusgate, with the goal of producing and processing of lavender and associated merchandise. Four years later there were one hundred acres being cultivated. Ever since those early years the enterprise has expanded appreciably, and different types have been nurtured. Lavender is now exported all throughout the world.
