A seaside village and popular vacation destination with some superb beaches, Heacham is set in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the port and town of Kings Lynn. The village has a population of about 4,700 occupants and is perhaps best known for its historic ties with the Indian native Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco planter, who was born in Heacham. The village is also well regarded for its lavender fields, farmed by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to get well liked as a holiday resort in the mid-19th century, as a consequence of arrival of the rail line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn at the beginning of the eighteen sixties. This also led to the Jubilee Bridge being erected in eighteen eighty seven in order to replace an older wooden bridge. The area is just as favoured today as a coastal resort, with both North and South Beach lined with camping and caravan parks.

The beach areas at this point are placed on the easterly shoreline of The Wash, consequently it's one of the few beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea as opposed to over the land.

Heritage of Heacham: It is likely more than 5,000 yrs since the first human settlements took place in the area close to Heacham, and the uncovering of Bronze Age and Neolithic artifacts, gives evidence of this fact. Habitation continued in the area through the Iron Age and into the Roman period, whilst it was in all probability not till the fifth century when the 1st real village was founded there. The name "Heacham" is considered to be derived from the title of a Lord during the twelfth century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is no compelling evidence that this is the truth. Still another theory is, the name was taken from the close by River Hitch.

Recognized in the Domesday Book (1086) as being included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham back then comprised 143 households (rather sizeable for the period) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. Prior to the Norman Conquest (1066) the area was controlled by a couple of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was subsequently under the control of Cluniac Monks, until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The earliest remaining building in the village is the Church of St 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, meaning it is one of the oldest bells still surviving in England. The village sign plus a tablet within the church remind the villagers of the historic links with Pocahontas, the red indian who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was just twenty two when she died 3 years later, nevertheless she left a son named Tom, who subsequently returned to America. Heacham Hall survived for centuries but was destroyed by fire in 1941.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in the village with a partnership being created between local nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of producing and distilling of lavender and related merchandise. A few years later there would be a hundred acres being cultivated. Ever since those early times the venture has grown appreciably, and different types have been raised. Lavender is currently sold all around the world.
