A seaside village and well loved holiday destination having some fantastic beaches, Heacham is found in the county of Norfolk, between the holiday resort of Hunstanton ("Hunny") and the port and town of King's Lynn. The village has a populace of roughly 5,000 people and is probably most commonly known for its historic connections with the Indian native Pocahontas, who married a tobacco grower called John Rolfe, who originated in Heacham. Heacham is also known for its fields of lavender, farmed by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to the area in 1932.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village began to get fashionable as a sea side resort in in the mid-nineteenth century, because of the opening of the train line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn in the 1860s. That resulted in the Jubilee Bridge being erected in the 1880's in order to replace the older wooden bridge. The village still is favoured today as a tourist resort, with both the North and South Beaches being replete with caravan sites.

The beach areas at this point are set upon the eastern shoreline of The Wash, this means it is one of few beaches in the east of England where the sun sets over the sea rather than over the land.

Heacham's Historical Past: It's most likely over 5,000 yrs since the 1st human settlers showed up in the area surrounding Heacham, and the discovery of Bronze Age and Neolithic artifacts, gives evidence of this fact. Human settlement remained there through the Iron Age and into the Roman era, whilst it was most likely not until the fifth century when the 1st proper village was set up there. The name is supposed to be derived from the name of a Lord of the Manor in the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is no firm evidence that this is true. Another explanation is that the name derives from the nearby River Hitch.

Documented in the 1086 Domesday Book as being in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at this stage was made up of one hundred and forty three households (fairly substantial for this time) and the head of the manor was William of Warenne. Prior to the Norman Conquest the region was overseen by a pair of Saxons, Alnoth and Toki of Walton. It was then under the control of Cluniac Monks, right up until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Duke of Norfolk became Lord of the Manor.

The earliest surviving building in Heacham is the Saint Mary the Virgin Church, which is built in the Norman style and dates from twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is believe it or not still earlier than this, dating from approximately eleven hundred, making it one of the most ancient bells still existing in England. Heacham's village sign plus a tablet in the church recount the famous links with Pocahontas, the red indian princess who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. Pocahontas was just twenty two when she passed away three years later, nonetheless she provided John with a son, Tom, who eventually went back to America. Heacham Hall endured for many years but was eventually destroyed by fire in 1941.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in the village with a partnership being arranged between nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner called Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of growing and processing of lavender and related products. Four years later there were 100 acres covered in lavender plants. Since those early days the company has expanded substantially, and newer types have been reared. Lavender is nowadays exported all over the world.
