A village and well known holiday destination having some outstanding beaches, Heacham is situated in the county of Norfolk, in between the resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large town and port of King's Lynn. Heacham has a population of roughly five thousand occupants and is possibly most commonly known for its ties with the Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco planter called John Rolfe, who originated from Heacham. Heacham is also known for its fields of lavender, nurtured by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to the area in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to become known as a sea side resort in the mid-19th century, because of the building of the railway line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton at the beginning of the eighteen sixties. That resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being constructed in 1887 to replace an older wood bridge. The area is just as favoured nowadays as a coastal resort, with both South Beach and North Beach being peppered with caravan sites.

The beach areas here are found on the easterly banks of The Wash, as a consequence it is one of the few beaches in the east of England where the sun sets over the sea rather than over the land.

Historical Background of Heacham: It is very likely over five millenia since the earliest human settlers showed up in the area around Heacham, and the finding of Neolithic and Bronze Age artefacts, gives evidence of this. Habitation persisted there thru the Iron Age and into Roman times, even though it was in all likelihood not till the 5th century when the first actual village was founded there. The name is perhaps taken from the title of a local Lord of the Manor during the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, though there is not any compelling evidence of this. One additional idea is, the name derives from the nearby River Hitch.

Noted down in the 1086 Domesday Book as being included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham during those times contained one hundred and forty three households (making it quite large for this period) and the manor was controlled by William of Warenne. Up until the 1066 Norman Conquest the area was overseen by a couple of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was afterwards under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, right up until following the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The earliest surviving building in the village is the Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, which was built in the Norman style and was completed in 1230, a bell in the tower is in fact even earlier, dating from around eleven hundred, one of the earliest bells still surviving in England. Heacham's village sign and also a tablet within the church remind the villagers of the historic ties with the red indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only twenty two when she passed away 3 years later, nonetheless she left behind a son named Tom, who subsequently returned to America. The hall survived for centuries but was destroyed by fire in the 1940s.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in the village with a partnership being arranged between nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner named Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of harvesting and processing of lavender and related products. In 1936 there were one hundred acres under cultivation. Since those early times the enterprise has expanded enormously, and different varieties have been propagated. The lavender is nowadays exported all around the globe.
