A seaside village and popular vacation resort alongside some fine beaches, Heacham can be found in the county of Norfolk, in between the resort of Hunstanton and the large port and town of King's Lynn. The village has a resident population of about 4,707 occupants and is perhaps most recognized for its links with the native Indian Pocahontas, who wedded John Rolfe, a tobacco planter, who originated in Heacham. The area is furthermore well regarded for its lavender fields, cultivated by Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they arrived in the nineteen thirties.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to be known as a tourist resort in Victorian times, with the coming of the train line between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton in the early 1860s. That culminated in the Jubilee Bridge being built in the eighteen eighties to replace an ancient timber bridge. The area still is well-liked today as a beach resort, with both North Beach and South Beach lined with caravan and camping parks.

The beaches in this area are placed upon the east shores of The Wash, this means that it's one of the rare beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea as opposed to over the land.

Heacham's Historic Past: It is very likely more than five millenia since the earliest human settlers arrived in the vicinity around Heacham, the finding of Neolithic and Bronze Age relics, shows evidence of that. Human settlement continued there throughout the Iron Age and into the Roman era, however it was almost certainly not till the 5th century that the 1st proper village was established there. The name "Heacham" is supposed to be derived from the name of a Lord of the Manor in the 12th century, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is no solid evidence that this is the truth. A further thought it was named after the close by River Hitch.

Listed in the Domesday Book as being within the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, the village at that time was made up of 143 households (making it quite substantial for the time) and the manor was governed by William of Warenne. Prior to the 1066 Norman Conquest Heacham was overseen by two Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was afterwards controlled by Cluniac Monks, right up until following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The oldest surviving building in the village is the Parish Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, which was built in Norman style and dates from twelve thirty, a bell in the tower is in fact even earlier, dating from around eleven hundred, meaning it is one of the earliest bells still in existence in England. Heacham's village sign as well as a tablet in the church record the famous ties with the indian princess, Pocahontas who wedded John Rolfe, from Heacham Hall, in Virginia in 1614. Pocahontas (Rebecca) was just 22 when she died three years later, however she left behind a son named Tom, who subsequently returned to America. Heacham Hall endured for many years but was ultimately destroyed by fire during the Second World War.

In the early 1930's Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in the village with a partnership being arranged between a local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and local landowner called Francis Dusgate, with the aim of harvesting and processing of lavender and related products. A few years later there would be over a hundred acres under cultivation. Since these beginnings the enterprise has evolved greatly, and new varieties have been created. Lavender is these days sold all throughout the world.
