A seaside village and well loved holiday destination beside some wonderful beaches, Heacham is found in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the resort of Hunstanton and the large port and town of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a resident population of roughly 5,000 inhabitants and is probably most widely known for its connection with the Indian Pocahontas, who married a tobacco planter called John Rolfe, who was born in Heacham. Heacham is also known for its lavender fields, nurtured here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to get popular as a holiday resort in Victorian times, because of the arrival of the rail line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn in the early eighteen sixties. This also led to the construction of the Jubilee Bridge in the 1880's replacing the olden timber bridge. Heacham is just as well loved nowadays as a seaside resort, with both North Beach and South Beach lined with caravan sites.

The seashores at Heacham are situated on the eastern coast of The Wash, which means it's one of the rare beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea instead of over the land.

Heacham's Historic Past: It's quite possibly around five millenia since the initial settlements materialized in the area around Heacham, and the finding of Bronze Age and Neolithic relics, show evidence of this fact. Habitation continued in the area throughout the Iron Age and into the times of the Romans, but it was most likely not until the 5th century when the first actual village was established there. The name of the village is said to be taken from the name of a local Lord of the Manor during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there isn't any compelling evidence that this is the truth. A further possibility is that the name is derived from the local River Hitch.

Noted down in the Domesday Book of 1086 to be in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village during that time comprised 143 households (making it pretty large for the time) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. Prior to the Norman Conquest of 1066 this area was controlled by a couple of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was afterwards governed by Cluniac Monks, right up until following the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The earliest existing building in Heacham is the Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, built in the Norman style and is dated twelve thirty, one of its bells is believe it or not still older than the church itself, dating from around eleven hundred, making it one of the earliest bells still in existence in England. The village sign and a tablet in the church recount the historic ties with Pocahontas, the red indian who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was just 22 when she died three years later, but she provided John with a son, Tom, who subsequently went back to America. The hall survived for many years but was ultimately destroyed by fire in 1941.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in Heacham with a partnership being created between local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of producing and distilling of lavender and related merchandise. By 1936 there would be over a hundred acres being cultivated. Since these beginnings the venture has expanded significantly, and new varieties have been nurtured. Lavender is nowadays exported all throughout the world.
