A coastal village and well known holiday destination with some awesome beaches, Heacham is found in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the town and port of Kings Lynn. The village has a resident population of about 4,707 inhabitants and is perhaps most famous for its historic ties with the Indian native Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco merchant called John Rolfe, who originated from Heacham. The village is furthermore well regarded for its fields of lavender, harvested here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to the area in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to become fashionable as a beach resort in the 19th century, mainly because of the building of the train line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the early eighteen sixties. That resulted in the erection of the Jubilee Bridge in eighteen eighty seven to take the place of an ancient wood bridge. The area is still favoured nowadays as a tourist resort, with both North Beach and South Beach lined with caravan parks.

The beaches here are placed upon the easterly shores 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.

Historical Background of Heacham: It's perhaps around 5 millenia since the first settlers emerged in the vicinity near Heacham, and the discovery of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, show evidence of that. Human settlement persisted there all through the Iron Age and into the Roman era, but it was possibly not till the 5th century that the 1st true village was set up there. The name of the village is said to be taken from the name of a Lord during the 12th century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any compelling evidence that this is the truth. One more idea is, the name was taken from the local River Hitch.

Noted in the Domesday Book of 1086 as being part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham in those days was made up of 143 households (making it pretty large for the time) and the manor was controlled by William of Warenne. Prior to the Norman Conquest the neighbourhood was ruled by a couple of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was later controlled by a group of Cluniac Monks, until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The earliest existing structure in Heacham is the Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, which was built in Norman style and was built in twelve thirty, one of its bells is actually still earlier than this, dating from around eleven hundred, making it one of the most ancient bells still existing in England. The village sign in addition to a tablet within the church tell of the famous links with the indian princess, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas was just 22 when she passed away 3 years later, still she produced a son named Tom, he later went back to America. The hall survived for centuries but was destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in Heacham with a partnership being set up involving a local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner called Francis Dusgate, to develop the cultivating and distilling of lavender and associated merchandise. A few years later there was destined to be a hundred acres being cultivated. Ever since those early beginnings the venture has expanded enormously, and newer types have been reared. The lavender is today exported all around the world.
