A village and well known holiday resort boasting some fine beaches, Heacham is stationed in the county of Norfolk, between the town of Hunstanton and the town and port of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a resident population of roughly five thousand inhabitants and is probably most widely known for its historic ties with the native Indian Pocahontas, who married a tobacco grower called John Rolfe, who was born in Heacham. The area is also reputed for its lavender fields, farmed here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to become known as a beach resort in the nineteenth century, mainly because of the establishing of the railway line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton in the 1860s. This also led to the Jubilee Bridge being built in eighteen eighty seven taking the place of the older timber bridge. The village is still popular these days as a seaside resort, with both the South and North Beach dotted with caravan parks.

The seashores at this point are placed upon the easterly shores of The Wash, as a consequence it is one of only a handful of beaches in the east of England where the sun sets over the sea as opposed to over the land.

Historic Past of Heacham: It's quite possibly approximately 5,000 years since the 1st human settlers emerged in the area surrounding Heacham, and the unearthing of Bronze Age and Neolithic artifacts, gives evidence of this. Habitation persisted in the area through the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, whilst it was in all likelihood not till the 5th century that the first proper village was founded there. The name of the village is possibly taken from the name of a local Norman Lord in the twelfth century, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there isn't any strong evidence of this. The other thought is, the name is derived from the local River Hitch.

Reported in the 1086 Domesday Book to be within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham back then supported one hundred and forty three households (pretty sizeable for this period) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. At the time of the 1066 Norman Conquest the area was controlled by a pair of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was afterwards governed by a group of Cluniac Monks, until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The oldest remaining structure in the village is the St Mary the Virgin Parish Church, which was built in the Norman style and dates from 1230, a bell in the tower is in truth even earlier than this, dating from around 1100, making it one of the most ancient bells still surviving in England. Heacham's village sign along with a tablet in the church record the historic links with the indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas was just twenty two when she died 3 years later, though she gave birth to a son, Tom, he eventually went back to America. The hall endured for many years but was ultimately destroyed by fire in the 1940s.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in Heacham with a partnership being set up involving local nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of harvesting and processing of lavender and related merchandise. In 1936 there was destined to be a hundred acres under cultivation. Ever since those early times the enterprise has evolved appreciably, and unique varieties have been produced. The lavender is nowadays sold all around the world.
