The village has a populace of around 4,707 inhabitants and is probably most widely known for its association with the Indian Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco grower, who was born in Heacham. The village is additionally well known for its fields of lavender, nurtured by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in nineteen thirty two.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to get fashionable as a seaside resort in the mid-19th century, simply because of the arrival of the rail line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton in the early eighteen sixties. That resulted in the construction of the Jubilee Bridge in the 1880's to replace the ancient timber bridge. The area still is favoured today as a holiday resort, with both the North Beach and South Beach peppered with caravan parks.

The seashores at Heacham are placed upon the eastern banks of The Wash, which means it's one of the few beaches in eastern England where sunsets are visible over the sea and not over the land.

Historic Past of Heacham: It is very likely roughly five thousand years since the initial settlements occurred in the area surrounding Heacham, the finding of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, gives evidence of that. Settlement continued in the area thru the Iron Age and into Roman times, although it was very likely not until the fifth century that the earliest genuine village was set up there. The name of the village is quite possibly taken from the title of a local Lord of the Manor in the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any reliable evidence of this. A further possibility it was named after the nearby River Hitch.

Reported in the Domesday Book of 1086 to be included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at that stage had 143 households (making it rather substantial for this period) and the manor came under the control of William of Warenne. Before the Norman Conquest (1066) the neighborhood was controlled by a couple of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was thereafter controlled by a group of Cluniac Monks, right up until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, at which time the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard) became Lord of the Manor.

The most ancient surviving building in the village is the St Mary the Virgin Church, which was built in the Norman style and was completed in twelve thirty, one of its bells is actually still older, dating from around eleven hundred, meaning it is one of the earliest bells still existing in England. The village sign along with a tablet inside the church tell of the historic ties with Pocahontas, the red indian who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. She was just 22 when she died three years later, however she produced a son called Tom, who later returned to America. Heacham Hall endured for centuries but was destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was founded in Heacham with a partnership being arranged between local nurseryman called Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, to develop the producing and processing of lavender and associated products.
