A village and popular vacation resort with some terrific beaches, Heacham is situated in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large port and town of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a populace of around five thousand occupants and is possibly most recognized for its connection with the native Indian Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco grower, who was born in Heacham. Heacham is also well regarded for its lavender fields, nurtured here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to be popular as a holiday resort in the time of the Victorians, right after the opening of the railway line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton at the beginning of the eighteen sixties. That also led to the erection of the Jubilee Bridge in eighteen eighty seven replacing the olden timber bridge. Heacham is just as popular these days as a tourist resort, with both South Beach and North Beach lined with caravan and camping parks.

The seashores here are placed on the eastern banks of The Wash, therefore it is one of the few beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea instead of over the land.

Heacham's Historical Past: It's perhaps around five thousand yrs since the earliest settlements appeared in the area around Heacham, the discovery of Neolithic and Bronze Age relics, shows evidence of that. Settlement continued in the area through the Iron Age and into the Roman period, although it was probably not till the fifth century when the 1st actual village was founded there. The name "Heacham" is perhaps derived from the title of a Lord of the Manor in the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, however there is no strong evidence that this is true. Yet another theory it was named after the nearby River Hitch.

Recorded in the Domesday Book (1086) as being included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village back then incorporated one hundred and forty three households (rather substantial for this period) and the manor belonged to William of Warenne. Prior to the Norman Conquest (1066) the village was overseen by a pair of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was afterwards under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, right up until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The most ancient existing building in the village is the Parish Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, built in Norman style and was completed in 1230, one of its bells is in fact still earlier, dating from around eleven hundred, making it one of the most ancient bells still existing in England. Heacham's village sign along with 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 only twenty two when she passed away 3 years later, still she produced a son called Tom, he eventually returned to America. Heacham Hall survived for centuries but was finally destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in the village with a partnership being set up between a local nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and local landowner named Francis Dusgate, with the objective of harvesting and distilling of lavender and associated merchandise. By 1936 there would be 100 acres being cultivated. Ever since these beginnings the venture has expanded dramatically, and unique types have been propagated. Lavender is today sold all over the world.
