A seaside village and well loved vacation destination featuring some fine beaches, Heacham is found in the county of Norfolk, in between the town of Hunstanton and the port and town of Kings Lynn. The village has a resident population of approximately five thousand inhabitants and is perhaps most famous for its connection with the native Indian Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco merchant, who originated from Heacham. The area is also reputed for its lavender fields, harvested here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to get popular as a tourist resort in the nineteenth century, after the opening of the train line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the early eighteen sixties. This resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being erected in 1887 to replace an ancient wooden bridge. The village still is popular these days as a seaside resort, with both North and South Beaches being dotted with caravan and camping sites.

The seashores at Heacham are located upon the east shores of The Wash, this means it's one of the rare beaches in eastern England where the sun sets over the sea instead of over the land.

Historical Background of Heacham: It is more than likely more than five thousand years since the earliest settlements took place in the vicinity near Heacham, the discovery of Bronze Age and Neolithic artefacts, shows evidence of this. Settlement remained in the area through the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, but it was in all probability not until the fifth century that the earliest actual village was set up there. The name of the village is possibly derived from the title of a local Norman Lord during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, though there is no firm evidence of this. The other theory it was named after the close by River Hitch.

Listed in the Domesday Book as being included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that moment supported 143 households (making it fairly sizeable for the times) and the manor was controlled by William of Warenne. At the time of the Norman Conquest of 1066 Heacham was controlled by a pair of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was later under the control of Cluniac Monks, until after the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The earliest surviving structure in the village is the Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, which is built in Norman style and dates from 1230, one of its bells is believe it or not even older, dating from about 1100, meaning it is one of the oldest bells still surviving in England. Heacham's village sign in addition to a tablet in the church recall the historic links with the red indian princess, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was just 22 when she died 3 years later, however she left a son, Tom, he subsequently went back to America. Heacham Hall endured for many years but was finally destroyed by fire in the 1940s.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in Heacham with a partnership being created involving nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and a landowner named Francis Dusgate, to develop the producing and distilling of lavender and associated products. A few years later there were 100 acres under cultivation. Ever since those early beginnings the company has grown appreciably, and new types have been nurtured. Lavender is currently exported all around the world.
