A seaside village and popular holiday destination with some excellent beaches, Heacham is situated in Norfolk, East Anglia, in between the town of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the large town and port of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a populace of around 4,700 people and is probably most recognized for its connection with the Indian Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco merchant, who originated from Heacham. The village is also well known for its lavender fields, cultivated by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they arrived in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386Heacham started to be fashionable as a sea side resort in the nineteenth century, due to the establishing of the rail line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the early 1860s. That also led to the Jubilee Bridge being erected in the eighteen eighties to replace an older wood bridge. Heacham is still favoured these days as a coastal resort, with both the North and South Beaches lined with camping and caravan sites.

The shorelines in this area are set upon the eastern coast of The Wash, this means it is one of very few beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets are visible over the sea instead of over the land.

Heacham's Historical Background: It is quite likely approximately 5,000 yrs since the initial human settlers arrived in the region surrounding Heacham, and the discovery of Neolithic and Bronze Age artifacts, gives evidence of this. Habitation remained there thru the Iron Age and into the Roman era, but it was in all likelihood not till the fifth century when the first real village was set up there. The name is believed to be taken from the title of a Lord of the Manor in the 12th century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there isn't any firm evidence that this is a fact. Yet another possibility it was named after the close by River Hitch.

Described in the Domesday Book (1086) to be in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village then comprised one hundred and forty three households (making it fairly big for the period) and the manor came under the control of William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest of 1066 Heacham was controlled by a couple of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was afterwards controlled by Cluniac Monks, right up until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, at which time the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The most ancient remaining structure in Heacham is the Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, which was built in Norman style and was completed in twelve thirty, one of its bells is believe it or not even earlier than the church itself, dating from about 1100, one of the most ancient bells still in existence in England. Heacham's village sign along with a tablet inside the church outline the famous links with the indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. She was only 22 when she died three years later, nevertheless she provided John with a son, Tom, he later on returned to America. The hall endured for centuries but was destroyed by fire in the early 1940s.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was founded in the village with a partnership being created involving a local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner named Francis Dusgate, to develop the growing and processing of lavender and related products. By 1936 there was destined to be 100 acres covered in lavender plants. Ever since then the business has grown dramatically, and newer varieties have been raised. Lavender is now sold all around the world.
