A seaside village and well loved holiday destination adjacent to some exceptional beaches, Heacham is found in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the town of Hunstanton and the port and town of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a resident population of around five thousand inhabitants and is possibly most commonly known for its connection with the Indian native Pocahontas, who married a tobacco merchant called John Rolfe, who was born in Heacham. The village is also well regarded for its lavender fields, grown here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to become fashionable as a sea side resort in Victorian times, as a consequence of coming of the railway line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the early eighteen sixties. This culminated in the Jubilee Bridge being built in 1887 replacing an ancient wood bridge. The village still is well-liked today as a seaside resort, with both the South Beach and North Beach replete with caravan parks.

The beach areas at this point are located on the east shoreline of The Wash, as a consequence it's one of the rare beaches in the east of England where the sun sets over the sea instead of over the land.

Historic Past of Heacham: It's most certainly approximately five millenia since the initial human settlers arrived in the area around Heacham, the uncovering of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, shows evidence of this. Settlement continued in the area throughout the Iron Age and into the Roman period, however it was likely not till the fifth century that the first proper village was set up there. The name "Heacham" is quite possibly derived from the title of a local Lord of the Manor during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, however there is no compelling evidence of this. A further possibility it was named after the local River Hitch.

Noted down in the Domesday Book of 1086 as being in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that moment had 143 households (pretty large for the period) and the manor was governed by William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest (1066) the area was overseen by a couple of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was thereafter under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, right up until following the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The eldest surviving building in Heacham is the Saint Mary the Virgin Parish Church, which is built in Norman style and dates from twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is in fact even earlier than the church itself, dating from roughly eleven hundred, one of the most ancient bells still existing in England. The village sign and a tablet inside the church remind the villagers of the historic ties with Pocahontas, the red indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. She was only 22 when she died 3 years later, nevertheless she left behind a son named Tom, who subsequently went back to America. Heacham Hall survived for centuries but was 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 created involving local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of harvesting and distilling of lavender and associated products. By 1936 there were a hundred acres under cultivation. Since those early beginnings the enterprise has grown significantly, and different types have been nurtured. The lavender is these days sold all throughout the world.
