A village and well known holiday destination beside some fine beaches, Heacham can be found in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the town of Hunstanton and the large port and town of Kings Lynn. The village has a population of around 4,700 inhabitants and is possibly most recognized for its historic links with the Indian Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco planter, who originated in Heacham. Heacham is furthermore well known for its fields of lavender, grown here 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 get known as a seaside resort in the 19th century, a result of the arrival of the railway line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton in the eighteen sixties. That culminated in the building of the Jubilee Bridge in the 1880's to replace an ancient timber bridge. The village is just as favoured nowadays as a holiday resort, with both the North and South Beaches being lined with caravan parks.

The seashores here are found upon the eastern coast of The Wash, this means that it's one of very few beaches in the east of England where sunsets are visible over the sea rather than over the land.

Historical Background of Heacham: It is quite likely approximately five thousand yrs since the first human settlers arrived in the region surrounding Heacham, the uncovering of Neolithic and Bronze Age relics, shows evidence of this fact. Habitation continued there through the Iron Age and into the Roman period, though it was in all probability not till the 5th century that the earliest real village was set up there. The name of the village is perhaps derived from the name of a Norman Lord during the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, although there is not any solid evidence that this is a fact. One more thought it was named after the nearby River Hitch.

Noted in the Domesday Book as being in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham back then consisted of 143 households (fairly big for this time) and the manor came under the control of William of Warenne. Before the Norman Conquest (1066) the neighborhood was ruled by a pair of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was subsequently under the control of Cluniac Monks, right until after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, when the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The earliest surviving structure in Heacham is the Church of St Mary the Virgin, built in the Norman style and is dated 1230, a bell in the tower is in fact even older than the church itself, dating from approximately 1100, making it one of the earliest bells still in existence in England. Heacham's village sign and a tablet in the church tell of the famous links with the red indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only 22 when she passed away three years later, however she left a son, Tom, who eventually went back to America. The hall survived for centuries but was destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.

In 1932 Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in Heacham with a partnership being set up involving a local nurseryman named Linn Chilvers and local landowner called Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of cultivating and distilling of lavender and related merchandise. 4 years later there would be over a hundred acres covered in lavender plants. Since those early days the venture has grown enormously, and new varieties have been propagated. The lavender is currently exported all over the world.
