A village and popular holiday destination next to some wonderful beaches, Heacham is positioned in the county of Norfolk, in between the holiday resort of Hunstanton and the town and port of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a populace of around 4,707 people and is perhaps most widely known for its link with the native Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco grower called John Rolfe, who originated in Heacham. Heacham is also reputed for its fields of lavender, harvested by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to become well liked as a sea side resort in Victorian times, right after the arrival of the railway line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn at the beginning of the eighteen sixties. That resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being constructed in eighteen eighty seven replacing an older wooden bridge. The village is still favoured nowadays as a seaside resort, with both the South Beach and North Beach being dotted with caravan and camping sites.

The shorelines here are set upon the east shoreline of The Wash, meaning it is one of very few beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea as opposed to over the land.

Historical Background of Heacham: It's in all probability around five millenia since the initial settlements appeared in the region near Heacham, and the discovery of Bronze Age and Neolithic relics, shows evidence of this fact. Habitation persisted there through the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, but it was quite possibly not till the 5th century when the 1st proper village was founded there. The name is possibly derived from the name of a Lord during the twelfth century, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any solid evidence that this is true. Another theory it was named after the close by River Hitch.

Recorded in the Domesday Book to be part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham during that time comprised 143 households (making it pretty large for this period) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. At the time of the Norman Conquest of 1066 this area was ruled by a couple of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was afterwards controlled by Cluniac Monks, right up until following the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The oldest existing structure in Heacham is the Saint Mary the Virgin Church, which is built in Norman style and was completed in 1230, a bell in the tower is actually still earlier than this, dating from about 1100, meaning it is one of the most ancient bells still existing in England. The village sign plus a tablet inside the church outline the historic ties with Pocahontas, the indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was just 22 when she passed away three years later, nevertheless she gave birth to a son named Tom, who eventually went back to America. The hall endured for many years but was ultimately destroyed by fire in 1941.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in Heacham with a partnership being set up between a local nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and a landowner called Francis Dusgate, to develop the cultivating and distilling of lavender and related products. By 1936 there would be a hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Since these beginnings the enterprise has expanded significantly, and new types have been created. The lavender is currently exported all around the world.
