This is just before the marriage of George Hunt (II) and Ann Cambell.

In this year there was an outbreak of cholera which particularly affected Upwell. It was one of the places most severely affected, and 67 people died in less than two months in this village and the neighbouring Nordelph. The whole population of Upwell (Isle and Norfolk sides) in 1841 was 874, and so 67 people was a very significant proportion. There is a memorial brass to this epidemic in Upwell Church. The outbreak could well have been one of the reasons why George and Ann decided to get married in St Ives . . but it may not have been the only reason.
