A village and popular vacation destination having some great beaches, Heacham is found in the county of Norfolk, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the port and town of Kings Lynn. Heacham has a population of around four thousand seven hundred occupants and is possibly most commonly known for its historic connections with the Indian native Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco merchant, who originated in Heacham. The village is also well known for its fields of lavender, nurtured here by Norfolk Lavender Ltd since they came to the area in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to get fashionable as a seaside resort in the 19th century, mainly because of the coming of the rail line between Hunstanton and Kings Lynn in the early eighteen sixties. That culminated in the building of the Jubilee Bridge in the 1880's to take the place of an olden wooden bridge. The village continues to be favoured nowadays as a tourist resort, with both the South Beach and North Beach dotted with caravan and camping parks.

The seashores in this area are placed upon the easterly shores of The Wash, this means it's one of the few beaches on the east coast of England where sunsets are visible over the sea and not over the land.

Heacham's History: It is likely roughly five thousand years since the earliest settlers arrived in the area around Heacham, and the finding of Bronze Age and Neolithic artifacts, gives evidence of this. Settlement continued in the area through the Iron Age and into Roman times, whilst it was most probably not until the fifth century when the earliest true village was established there. The name "Heacham" is said to be derived from the title of a local Norman Lord during the 1300s, Geoffrey de Hecham, though there isn't any compelling evidence that this is the truth. The other idea it was named after the close by River Hitch.

Reported in the Domesday Book (1086) as being in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village back then supported one hundred and forty three households (making it pretty big for this times) and the manor came under the control of William of Warenne. Up until the Norman Conquest of 1066 the area was ruled by 2 Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was thereafter governed by Cluniac Monks, right until following the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The oldest surviving structure in Heacham is the St Mary the Virgin Parish Church, built in Norman style and is dated twelve thirty, one of its bells is actually still earlier, dating from around eleven hundred, meaning it is one of the most ancient bells still in existence in England. The village sign and a tablet inside the church remind visitors of the historic ties with the indian princess, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was only twenty two when she died 3 years later, nevertheless she produced a son, Tom, he later went back to America. Heacham Hall survived for centuries but was destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was formed in Heacham with a partnership being set up involving local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner named Francis Dusgate, with the objective of growing and processing of lavender and related merchandise. By 1936 there was destined to be one hundred acres under cultivation. Ever since these beginnings the business has evolved appreciably, and different varieties have been raised. Lavender is now exported all throughout the world.
