Heacham has a very special historic link that many people probably do not even realise! Ms Rebecca Rolfe (married to a Heacham man), was buried 400 years ago.. don't recognise the name? That may be because history knows her better as Pocahontas! There is an instant connection made between the seaside town & Pocahontas herself, having a carving based on the most famous portrait of her displaying on the village sign. There is also a memorial of her in the village church! 'Church of St Mary The Virgin'.
