A coastal village and popular holiday resort having some superb beaches, Heacham can be found in the county of Norfolk, between the resort of Hunstanton and the large port and town of Kings Lynn. The village has a populace of around four thousand seven hundred inhabitants and is probably most recognized for its link with the Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco grower called John Rolfe, who originated from Heacham. Heacham is also well regarded for its fields of lavender, harvested here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to become known as a tourist resort in the mid-19th century, due to the establishing of the train line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn at the start of the eighteen sixties. This resulted in the building of the Jubilee Bridge in eighteen eighty seven replacing an old wood bridge. Heacham still is well loved nowadays as a seaside resort, with both North and South Beaches lined with caravan parks.

The seashores at this point are positioned on the eastern banks of The Wash, which means it's one of the rare beaches in eastern England where the sun sets over the sea as opposed to over the land.

Heacham's History: It's likely approximately five thousand years since the earliest human settlements materialized in the vicinity near Heacham, the finding of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, show evidence of this fact. Human settlement persisted there all through the Iron Age and into the Roman era, even though it was in all probability not until the 5th century that the earliest genuine village was established there. The name is said to be derived from the name of a Lord of the Manor during the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is no firm evidence that this is the truth. Another thought is, the name was taken from the nearby River Hitch.

Documented in the 1086 Domesday Book to be included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at that stage consisted of 143 households (fairly large for the time) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. Before the Norman Conquest of 1066 the area was controlled by 2 Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was then governed by Cluniac Monks, right up until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, when the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The eldest existing building in the village is the St Mary the Virgin Parish Church, which was built in Norman style and dates from 1230, a bell in the tower is actually even earlier, dating from around eleven hundred, making it one of the oldest bells still surviving in England. The village sign and a tablet inside the church recount the famous links with Pocahontas, the indian princess who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only 22 when she passed away 3 years later, but she left a son called Tom, he later on went back to America. The hall endured for centuries but was destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was founded in the village with a partnership being set up involving local nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of harvesting and distilling of lavender and associated products. By 1936 there would be over a hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Ever since these beginnings the venture has grown considerably, and newer types have been raised. Lavender is currently exported all around the world.
