A village and well loved holiday destination offering some wonderful beaches, Heacham is situated in the county of Norfolk, between the resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large port and town of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a populace of roughly 4,707 occupants and is perhaps most famous for its historic connections with the native Indian Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco merchant, who was born in Heacham. The area is also well known for its lavender fields, farmed by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to be fashionable as a seaside resort in in the mid-nineteenth century, just after the coming of the rail line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn in the eighteen sixties. That culminated in the Jubilee Bridge being erected in the eighteen eighties replacing the aged timber bridge. The village continues to be popular today as a holiday resort, with both the South and North Beach being replete with camping and caravan parks.

The beaches in this area are placed upon the easterly shoreline of The Wash, this means it is one of the rare beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets are visible over the sea instead of over the land.

Heacham's Historic Past: It is most certainly around 5 millenia since the initial human settlers turned up in the area surrounding Heacham, and the uncovering of Bronze Age and Neolithic artifacts, show evidence of that. Habitation continued in the area thru the Iron Age and into the Roman era, even though it was probably not till the fifth century when the first genuine village was founded there. The name "Heacham" is quite possibly taken from the name of a local Lord of the Manor during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there isn't any reliable evidence that this is true. An extra thought is that the name is taken from the close by River Hitch.

Reported in the Domesday Book of 1086 as being within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village then comprised one hundred and forty three households (fairly substantial for the period) and the manor was controlled by William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest this area was ruled by 2 Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was then under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, right until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The eldest surviving structure in the village is the Parish Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, built in the Norman style and is dated twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is believe it or not even earlier than this, dating from about eleven hundred, making it one of the earliest bells still in existence in England. Heacham's village sign as well as a tablet within the church record the famous ties with Pocahontas, the red indian who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was just 22 when she passed away 3 years later, however she gave birth to a son, Tom, who subsequently returned to America. Heacham Hall endured for many years but was destroyed by fire in 1941.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was set up in the village with a partnership being set up involving a local nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and a landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of growing and processing of lavender and associated merchandise. In 1936 there would be over a hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Since then the venture has grown appreciably, and different varieties have been bred. The lavender is today exported all throughout the world.
