A seaside village and popular holiday resort adjacent to some excellent beaches, Heacham is found in the county of Norfolk, in between the town of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the town and port of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a populace of approximately 4,707 people and is perhaps best known for its historic ties with the Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco planter called John Rolfe, who originated in Heacham. The village is additionally well known for its lavender fields, farmed by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to get known as a sea side resort in in the mid-nineteenth century, with the building of the rail line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton at the beginning of the 1860s. That also led to the building of the Jubilee Bridge in the eighteen eighties to take the place of an oudated wood bridge. The village continues to be popular these days as a holiday resort, with both South and North Beaches replete with caravan and camping sites.

The beaches in this area are found upon the eastern coast of The Wash, consequently it is one of the rare beaches in the east of England where sunsets are visible over the sea instead of over the land.

Heacham's History: It's quite possibly around 5 millenia since the first settlements appeared in the vicinity near Heacham, the finding of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, gives evidence of this fact. Human settlement persisted there all through the Iron Age and into the Roman era, whilst it was most likely not until the fifth century that the earliest real village was set up there. The name is supposed to be derived from the name of a local Lord of the Manor in the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any compelling evidence that this is a fact. An extra possibility is, the name comes from the nearby River Hitch.

Described in the Domesday Book to be within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at this stage comprised one hundred and forty three households (rather large for this times) and the manor came under the control of William of Warenne. Before the Norman Conquest (1066) the village was controlled by two Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was later controlled by Cluniac Monks, right until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The earliest surviving structure in Heacham is the Saint Mary the Virgin Church, which is built in the Norman style and is dated twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is believe it or not still earlier, dating from about 1100, making it one of the most ancient bells still in existence in England. The village sign as well as a tablet inside the church remind the villagers of the famous ties with Pocahontas, the red indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only 22 when she passed away 3 years later, still she left a son called Tom, who later returned to America. Heacham Hall survived for many years but was destroyed by fire in 1941.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in Heacham with a partnership being set up between a local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, to develop the growing and distilling of lavender and associated merchandise. By 1936 there would be 100 acres being cultivated. Ever since those early beginnings the business has evolved dramatically, and fresh types have been created. Lavender is nowadays sold all around the world.
