A seaside village and popular holiday resort having some excellent beaches, Heacham is found in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the town of Hunstanton and the large port and town of Kings Lynn.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to be fashionable as a seaside resort in in the mid-nineteenth century, due to the establishing of the rail line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the 1860s. This also led to the construction of the Jubilee Bridge in the eighteen eighties to replace the ancient wooden bridge.

Heacham's Historical Past: It's most likely roughly 5 millenia since the first human settlers arrived in the region surrounding Heacham, the finding of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, gives evidence of this fact. Human settlement remained in the area all through the Iron Age and into the Roman era, while it was very likely not until the 5th century that the 1st true village was established there. The name is said to be derived from the name of a Lord during the twelfth century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there isn't any strong evidence of this. Still another explanation it was named after the local River Hitch.

Documented in the Domesday Book of 1086 as being part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village during that time consisted of one hundred and forty three households (quite large for the time) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. Prior to the Norman Conquest the neighborhood was overseen by 2 Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was later controlled by Cluniac Monks, right until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The most ancient existing building in Heacham is the St Mary the Virgin Parish Church, built in the Norman style and dates from 1230, a bell in the tower is in fact even earlier, dating from approximately eleven hundred, making it one of the earliest bells still in existence in England. Heacham's village sign plus a tablet inside the church tell of the famous ties with Pocahontas, the red indian princess who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only 22 when she died three years later, nonetheless she left behind a son, Tom, who later 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 created between a local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner called Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of harvesting and distilling of lavender and related merchandise. A few years later there were 100 acres under cultivation. Ever since those early beginnings the business has evolved enormously, and brand new varieties have been reared.
