A coastal village and well known vacation resort with some wonderful beaches, Heacham is located in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the town of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large port and town of Kings Lynn. The village has a population of roughly 4,707 occupants and is possibly most recognized for its historic connections with the native Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco planter called John Rolfe, who was born in Heacham. The village is furthermore well known for its fields of lavender, nurtured by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to the village in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to be known as a seaside resort in the time of the Victorians, due to the building of the rail line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the 1860s. This resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being erected in eighteen eighty seven replacing the old timber bridge. Heacham still is well-liked today as a beach resort, with both the North and South Beaches being peppered with caravan and camping parks.

The seashores at this point are found upon the eastern shoreline of The Wash, as a consequence it is one of very few beaches in eastern England where the sun sets over the sea rather than over the land.

A History of Heacham Norfolk: It is more than likely over 5,000 years since the first settlers turned up in the region close to Heacham, and the finding of Bronze Age and Neolithic artifacts, show evidence of this fact. Human settlement continued there all through the Iron Age and into the Roman period, whilst it was quite likely not until the 5th century that the first genuine village was founded there. The name of the village is quite possibly derived from the name of a Lord of the Manor in the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, though there isn't any compelling evidence that this is true. A different thought is, the name is taken from the close by River Hitch.

Recorded in the 1086 Domesday Book to be in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham then contained one hundred and forty three households (pretty sizeable for this times) and the manor was controlled by William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest (1066) the neighbourhood was controlled by 2 Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was afterwards governed by Cluniac Monks, until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The eldest surviving structure in the village is the Parish Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, built in Norman style and was built in twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is actually even earlier, dating from approximately 1100, meaning it is one of the oldest bells still existing in England. Heacham's village sign and also a tablet within the church outline the historic ties with the indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was just twenty two when she died three years later, however she left behind a son, Tom, who later returned to America. Heacham Hall survived for many years but was destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in Heacham with a partnership being created involving a local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner called Francis Dusgate, to develop the harvesting and processing of lavender and associated merchandise. A few years later there was destined to be 100 acres covered in lavender plants. Ever since those early beginnings the venture has evolved greatly, and newer varieties have been nurtured. Lavender is nowadays exported all throughout the world.
