A seaside village and popular vacation destination next to some superb beaches, Heacham is set in the county of Norfolk, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton and the large port and town of King's Lynn. Heacham has a populace of roughly 4,707 occupants and is possibly most recognized for its association with the Indian native Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco grower, who came from Heacham. The village is also widely known for its lavender fields, farmed here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to the area in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to get well liked as a beach resort in in the mid-nineteenth century, due to the building of the rail line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton at the beginning of the eighteen sixties. That resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being erected in the 1880's in order to replace an old timber bridge. Heacham still is well loved nowadays as a beach resort, with both North and South Beaches being replete with caravan parks.

The shorelines at Heacham are placed on the easterly shores of The Wash, which means it's one of very few beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea as opposed to over the land.

Historical Background of Heacham: It is most likely more than five millenia since the earliest human settlements appeared in the area surrounding Heacham, and the uncovering of Neolithic and Bronze Age relics, shows evidence of that. Human settlement continued there thru the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, although it was likely not until the 5th century when the 1st actual village was established there. The name is quite possibly derived from the title of a Norman Lord during the 12th century, Geoffrey de Hecham, however there is not any firm evidence of this. Yet another idea it was named after the nearby River Hitch.

Described in the 1086 Domesday Book to be in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village then was made up of one hundred and forty three households (making it quite large for this time) and the Lord of the Manor was William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest (1066) the neighbourhood was ruled by 2 Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was afterwards under the control of Cluniac Monks, until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The eldest existing structure in Heacham is the St Mary the Virgin Parish Church, which was built in the Norman style and is dated 1230, one of its bells is in truth even older, dating from roughly eleven hundred, one of the oldest bells still in existence in England. Heacham's village sign in addition to a tablet within the church recall the famous ties with Pocahontas, the red indian princess who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only twenty two when she passed away 3 years later, still she left behind a son, Tom, who eventually went back to America. Heacham Hall endured for centuries but was eventually destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in the village with a partnership being set up between local nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and local landowner called Francis Dusgate, with the intention of growing and distilling of lavender and related products. Four years later there would be a hundred acres being cultivated. Since then the venture has grown appreciably, and newer types have been propagated. Lavender is today exported all around the globe.
