A village and well loved holiday destination with some superb beaches, Heacham is set in the county of Norfolk, between the town of Hunstanton and the large town and port of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a populace of roughly five thousand occupants and is probably best known for its historic connections with the Indian Pocahontas, who married a tobacco merchant called John Rolfe, who came from Heacham. The area is also known for its lavender fields, harvested by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to become well liked as a seaside resort in the mid-19th century, mainly because of the coming of the train line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn at the beginning of the 1860s. This resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being erected in the 1880's replacing the ancient wooden bridge. The village continues to be well loved these days as a seaside resort, with both South Beach and North Beach lined with caravan and camping parks.

The beach areas at Heacham are placed upon the east shoreline of The Wash, therefore it's one of the rare beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea instead of over the land.

Heacham's Historic Past: It's likely around five millenia since the 1st human settlements manifested in the region close to Heacham, the discovery of Bronze Age and Neolithic artefacts, shows evidence of this. Settlement continued in the area all through the Iron Age and into the Roman period, but it was likely not till the fifth century that the 1st real village was established there. The name of the village is possibly derived from the name of a local Norman Lord during the twelfth century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is no strong evidence that this is a fact. One additional explanation it was named after the close by River Hitch.

Noted in the Domesday Book (1086) as being in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at that moment in time incorporated one hundred and forty three households (making it rather large for this time) and the manor came under the control of William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest of 1066 the region was overseen by two Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was later governed by a group of Cluniac Monks, until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, at which time the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The earliest surviving building in Heacham is the Church of St Mary the Virgin, built in Norman style and dates from twelve thirty, one of its bells is actually even earlier, dating from about eleven hundred, one of the earliest bells still existing in England. Heacham's village sign and a tablet inside the church record the famous links with Pocahontas, the indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was just twenty two when she passed away three years later, though she gave birth to a son named Tom, he later went back to America. The hall survived for centuries but was destroyed by fire in 1941.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in Heacham with a partnership being created involving local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, with the goal of producing and distilling of lavender and related merchandise. By 1936 there were 100 acres covered in lavender plants. Since those early beginnings the company has grown significantly, and fresh new varieties have been reared. The lavender is currently exported all around the world.
