A village and popular vacation destination with some fine beaches, Heacham can be found in the county of Norfolk, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the port and town of King's Lynn. Heacham has a resident population of approximately 5,000 occupants and is perhaps most commonly known for its connection with the native Indian Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco grower, who came from Heacham. The area is also known for its fields of lavender, grown here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to the area in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to be well liked as a coastal resort in Victorian times, due to the building of the rail line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton at the start of the eighteen sixties. This culminated in the building of the Jubilee Bridge in 1887 to take the place of the ancient wood bridge. Heacham continues to be favoured nowadays as a beach resort, with both North and South Beaches lined with camping and caravan parks.

The shorelines here are placed upon the east shoreline of The Wash, this means it is one of few beaches in the east of England where the sun sets over the sea as opposed to over the land.

Historic Past of Heacham: It is probably more than five millenia since the initial human settlements materialized in the area close to Heacham, and the uncovering of Bronze Age and Neolithic relics, shows evidence of that. Settlement remained there thru the Iron Age and into Roman times, while it was almost certainly not till the 5th century that the first actual village was founded there. The name is perhaps taken from the name of a local Norman Lord during the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, however there is no reliable evidence that this is a fact. A different idea is that the name is derived from the nearby River Hitch.

Reported in the 1086 Domesday Book to be in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village during that time comprised 143 households (quite large for the time) and the Lord of the Manor was William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest the region was overseen by a pair of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was thereafter under the control of Cluniac Monks, right up until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The eldest surviving building in Heacham is the Church of St Mary the Virgin, built in the Norman style and dates from twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is actually still older than the church itself, dating from around eleven hundred, one of the oldest bells still existing in England. The village sign and a tablet in the church outline the historic links with Pocahontas, the indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only 22 when she died three years later, still she left behind a son, Tom, who later on went back to America. Heacham Hall endured for many years but was finally destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in Heacham with a partnership being arranged between a local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner named Francis Dusgate, to develop the cultivating and processing of lavender and related merchandise. A few years later there would be one hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Ever since these beginnings the enterprise has expanded considerably, and newer varieties have been raised. Lavender is nowadays exported all throughout the world.
