A coastal village and popular vacation destination adjacent to some excellent beaches, Heacham is set in the county of Norfolk, in between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the town and port of King's Lynn. Heacham has a population of around 4,707 occupants and is possibly best known for its ties with the Indian native Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco merchant, who originated from Heacham. The area is also reputed for its fields of lavender, cultivated by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to the area in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to get known as a beach resort in in the mid-nineteenth century, just after the opening of the rail line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton in the eighteen sixties. This resulted in the construction of the Jubilee Bridge in the eighteen eighties in order to replace an older wood bridge. The village is still well loved nowadays as a seaside resort, with both South Beach and North Beach dotted with caravan and camping sites.

The seashores in this area are set on the easterly shoreline of The Wash, therefore it is one of very few beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea rather than over the land.

Heacham's Historic Past: It's undoubtedly roughly five millenia since the earliest settlements occurred in the area around Heacham, and the finding of Bronze Age and Neolithic artifacts, shows evidence of this fact. Habitation persisted there through the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, although it was most probably not until the fifth century that the 1st actual village was founded there. The name "Heacham" is quite possibly taken from the name of a Lord of the Manor in the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any strong evidence that this is true. Still another theory it was named after the close by River Hitch.

Listed in the Domesday Book of 1086 to be within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham during those times included one hundred and forty three households (making it fairly large for this period) and the manor came under the control of William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest the neighbourhood was overseen by 2 Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was subsequently governed by a group of Cluniac Monks, right until after the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The oldest existing structure in the village is the Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, which is built in the Norman style and dates from twelve thirty, one of its bells is in truth even earlier than the church itself, dating from about eleven hundred, one of the oldest bells still surviving in England. The village sign as well as a tablet within the church recall the famous links with the indian princess, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas was only twenty two when she passed away 3 years later, but she provided John with a son called Tom, who subsequently returned to America. The hall survived for centuries but was ultimately destroyed by fire in 1941.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in the village with a partnership being created between a local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner called Francis Dusgate, to develop the harvesting and distilling of lavender and associated products. A few years later there was destined to be one hundred acres under cultivation. Ever since those early years the enterprise has evolved greatly, and unique types have been nurtured. Lavender is today sold all around the world.
