A village and well known holiday destination boasting some great beaches, Heacham can be found in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the resort of Hunstanton and the large town and port of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a resident population of approximately 4,700 inhabitants and is possibly most widely known for its links with the Indian native Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco merchant, who came from Heacham. The village is also reputed for its fields of lavender, nurtured by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to become popular as a coastal resort in in the mid-nineteenth century, with the arrival of the rail line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton in the 1860s. That also led to the erection of the Jubilee Bridge in the 1880's in order to replace the old wooden bridge. Heacham is still well loved these days as a beach resort, with both the North and South Beaches being lined with camping and caravan sites.

The shorelines at Heacham are placed upon the easterly banks of The Wash, as a consequence it's one of the rare beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets can be seen over the sea as opposed to over the land.

History of Heacham: It is more than likely more than five thousand yrs since the 1st human settlers turned up in the area around Heacham, the uncovering of Neolithic and Bronze Age relics, show evidence of this. Habitation persisted in the area all through the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, even though it was quite possibly not until the 5th century when the earliest true village was set up there. The name "Heacham" is possibly taken from the title of a local Norman Lord in the 12th century, Geoffrey de Hecham, however there isn't any firm evidence that this is the truth. A further theory is, the name is taken from the close by River Hitch.

Described in the Domesday Book of 1086 as being in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village during that time supported 143 households (making it quite large for this time) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. Up until the 1066 Norman Conquest the village was overseen by 2 Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was afterwards governed by Cluniac Monks, right up until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The earliest existing structure in the village is the Saint Mary the Virgin Church, built in the Norman style and dates from 1230, a bell in the tower is actually even earlier, dating from roughly 1100, one of the earliest bells still in existence in England. The village sign along with a tablet within the church recount the famous ties with the red indian princess, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only twenty two when she passed away three years later, however she provided John with a son, Tom, who eventually went back to America. Heacham Hall endured for many years but was destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was founded in the village with a partnership being created involving local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, with the goal of growing and processing of lavender and related products. In 1936 there were one hundred acres being cultivated. Ever since those early years the venture has evolved substantially, and fresh new varieties have been bred. The lavender is currently sold all around the world.
