A village and popular holiday resort having some terrific beaches, Heacham can be found in the county of Norfolk, in between the town of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the port and town of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a populace of approximately 4,707 people and is probably most famous for its connection with the Indian Pocahontas, who wedded a tobacco merchant called John Rolfe, who was born in Heacham. The village is furthermore known for its fields of lavender, cultivated by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to the village in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to be known as a seaside resort in Victorian times, due to the building of the railway line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the 1860s. That also led to the construction of the Jubilee Bridge in the 1880's in order to replace the dated timber bridge. Heacham is just as popular today as a beach resort, with both the North Beach and South Beach being dotted with camping and caravan sites.

The seashores at Heacham are placed on the easterly shoreline of The Wash, consequently it is one of the few beaches in eastern England where the sun sets over the sea instead of over the land.

Heacham's Historic Past: It's in all likelihood over five thousand yrs since the 1st human settlements appeared in the vicinity surrounding Heacham, the uncovering of Bronze Age and Neolithic artefacts, shows evidence of that. Settlement persisted there through the Iron Age and into Roman times, however it was almost certainly not till the fifth century when the earliest true village was set up there. The name "Heacham" is quite possibly derived from the title of a local Lord during the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is no firm evidence that this is a fact. A second theory it was named after the nearby River Hitch.

Recorded in the Domesday Book (1086) as being part of the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that moment consisted of 143 households (quite big for the times) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. Before the Norman Conquest of 1066 Heacham was overseen by 2 Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was thereafter under the control of a group of Cluniac Monks, right up until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, at which time the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The eldest existing structure in Heacham is the Saint Mary the Virgin Parish Church, which is built in Norman style and is dated 1230, a bell in the tower is actually even older, dating from around eleven hundred, meaning it is one of the oldest bells still surviving in England. The village sign as well as a tablet inside the church remind the villagers of the famous ties with the indian princess, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. She was only 22 when she passed away three years later, however she left behind a son called Tom, he later went back to America. Heacham Hall survived for many years but was destroyed by fire in the 1940s.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was founded in Heacham with a partnership being created between local nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and local landowner Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of producing and processing of lavender and related products. In 1936 there was destined to be a hundred acres being cultivated. Ever since those early days the company has evolved greatly, and fresh new varieties have been propagated. Lavender is currently sold all around the globe.
