They lived in Gamlingay, a village in Cambridgeshire, situated between St Neots and Biggleswade. Its current population is around 3,500. Wikipedia has a wealth of information, including the gem that by the year of 1844 there were 5 inns in Gamlingay. They moved to Eaton Socon some time before my great grandad was born, so could well have been living there when this picture was taken. They had a baker's shop in St Neots.
I went to college with someone from Gamlingay. It's the only reason I'd heard of the place before reading this :-)
