Buxted, East Sussex

Hi.

Does anyone have any knowledge about an outbreak of cholera in the Buxted area during the 1840s? I'm curious because the death certificate for my 4xgreat grandmother, Lucy Tyler states that she died of cholera morbus on 1st May 1846.

I was wondering if this was just a one-off case or if it was a more widespread event.

Thanks for looking.

There was a nationwide outbreak in the late 1840s which caused many deaths, particularly amongst those living near rivers My ggg grandmother was a victim, her death cert stating 'Asiatic Cholera'.

Thank you both.

Your info was most informative.

I wonder if anyone else here has had a relative die in or around Buxted at that time? Maybe they were also a casualty of the cholera infection? It would be interesting to know.

Thanks again.

Nine burials in Buxted between 17 April and 24 May 1846.

But we only know the cause of death of one of them!
