A village and well loved holiday destination adjacent to some excellent beaches, Heacham is found in the county of Norfolk, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large town and port of King's Lynn. The village has a resident population of around five thousand inhabitants and is possibly most famous for its historic connections with the native Indian Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco grower, who originated from Heacham. The area is also known for its fields of lavender, harvested by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to become popular as a holiday resort in in the mid-nineteenth century, simply because of the coming of the train line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton in the early 1860s. That also led to the construction of the Jubilee Bridge in the eighteen eighties taking the place of the olden wooden bridge. The village is just as well-liked these days as a coastal resort, with both South Beach and North Beach being dotted with caravan sites.

The beach areas in this area are placed on the eastern shoreline of The Wash, this means that it is one of the rare beaches in the east of England where the sun sets over the sea and not over the land.

The Historical Past of Heacham: It is more than likely more than five millenia since the first settlers colonized in the area around Heacham, and the discovery of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, shows evidence of this fact. Settlement remained in the area throughout the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, even though it was most likely not until the 5th century that the 1st real village was established there. The name is reported to be derived from the name of a local Lord during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, although there is not any compelling evidence of this. Yet another idea it was named after the nearby River Hitch.

Documented in the Domesday Book (1086) to be included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village back then contained 143 households (making it fairly sizeable for this times) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. At the time of the Norman Conquest (1066) this area was ruled by two Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was afterwards under the control of Cluniac Monks, right up until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The oldest remaining structure in Heacham is the Parish Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, built in the Norman style and dates from 1230, one of its bells is believe it or not even older, dating from about 1100, making it one of the oldest bells still surviving in England. The village sign in addition to a tablet within the church tell of the famous links with Pocahontas, the indian princess who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was just 22 when she died three years later, though she left behind a son, Tom, who subsequently went back to America. The hall survived for centuries but was destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in the village with a partnership being set up involving a local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner called Francis Dusgate, to develop the harvesting and processing of lavender and related merchandise. In 1936 there would be over one hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Ever since those early times the enterprise has expanded significantly, and fresh new varieties have been produced. The lavender is now sold all around the globe.
