The portraits of Thomas Welch Hunt and Caroline Welch Hunt were completed to commemorate their marriage in February 1824. Unfortunately, their marriage only lasted ten months. They were shot by a bandit near Poestum in Italy on the 3rd December and both Thomas and Caroline died of their injuries. They are buried in a joint grave in Naples. Thomas Welch Hunt was the owner of the estate and manor of Wadenhoe.
