A coastal village and well known holiday resort offering some superb beaches, Heacham is found in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the town of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large town and port of Kings Lynn. The village has a populace of about 4,707 occupants and is possibly most commonly known for its links with the native Indian Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco planter, who came from Heacham. The area is furthermore well regarded for its lavender fields, harvested by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to the village in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham began to become fashionable as a sea side resort in in the mid-nineteenth century, simply because of the coming of the rail line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton in the early eighteen sixties. That resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being constructed in 1887 to take the place of an old wooden bridge. The village continues to be popular today as a tourist resort, with both North Beach and South Beach dotted with caravan and camping sites.

The beaches at this point are placed on the eastern coast of The Wash, consequently it's one of few beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea and not over the land.

Historic Past of Heacham: It is most probably approximately five millenia since the 1st settlers colonized in the area around Heacham, the discovery of Neolithic and Bronze Age relics, gives evidence of this fact. Habitation remained there thru the Iron Age and into Roman times, though it was in all likelihood not until the 5th century that the earliest genuine village was founded there. The name of the village is reported to be derived from the name of a Norman Lord during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any compelling evidence of this. Still another explanation it was named after the close by River Hitch.

Noted down in the Domesday Book (1086) as being part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham during that time was made up of one hundred and forty three households (quite substantial for the times) and the manor was controlled by William of Warenne. At the time of the Norman Conquest (1066) this area was controlled by two Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was then governed by a group of Cluniac Monks, right up until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

The oldest existing building in the village is the Church of St Mary the Virgin, which was built in Norman style and was completed in 1230, a bell in the tower is believe it or not even older, dating from about eleven hundred, one of the earliest bells still existing in England. The village sign in addition to a tablet within the church record the historic links with the red indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. She was only twenty two when she died three years later, but she produced a son called Tom, who later went back to America. Heacham Hall survived for many years but was eventually destroyed by fire in 1941.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in the village with a partnership being arranged between nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and a landowner called Francis Dusgate, with the intention of harvesting and processing of lavender and associated products. In 1936 there were a hundred acres under cultivation. Ever since then the enterprise has evolved dramatically, and unique types have been reared. The lavender is currently sold all around the globe.
