Family trees: Gumbleton Family of Ireland


The date of settlement of the Gumbleton family in Ireland is uncertain. Early copies of Burke's Landed Gentry include the family and state that they are descended from the 'Kentish family of Gumbleton'. However, I have not yet found any evidence to support this.

The following is a family tree for the Irish Gumbletons. This is taken from Burke and various other sources, especially the research done by Peter Swann who is descended from the family.

Note 1: Mrs Quin was Catherine Grady, married first in 1784 to Rev. John Quin who died in 1789 with no issue, 
and then in 1792 to George Gumbleton [see Freeman's Journal 1792]. Her father had 
the lease of Cappercullen in 1759 from Lord Carbery, 
and two further ancestors were both called Standish, the first having taken the lease of Elton, co. Limerick, in 1673. [Source: info supplied by J Peter Swann]

Note 2: This information taken from marriage settlement transcribed by Jane Wood. Burke has her as Frances, dau. of Hamilton O'Hara but it was Frances Anne Hamilton's brother who added O'Hara to his name in adult life. 
They were the children of Charles Hamilton of Portglenone, co. Antrim, later of Bath. [Information supplied by Peter Swann]

Note 3: Burke gives the name as 'Richard'. However,  Faulkner's Dublin Journal and Freeman's Journal say 'Henry'. 

Note 4: Burke has John John Bowen's year of birth  as 1795  but  he registered himself at King's Inn in 1814 with a birth date of 20 April 1796,

Note 5: Dau of Rev Matthew Purcell & Elizabeth Leader

Note 6: Information about this branch supplied by Catherine Spencer

Note 7: Mary mentioned in will of father Richard

Note: Middle name 'Conner' in will of father

Note 9: Jane is wife of William 'Daniel' in will of Richard. Burke has William 'Daunt'

Note 10: Burke has R. Walton; Richard's will has Thomas Walton

Note 11: Jane Wood has transcribed Richard Gumbleton's (the father's) the will and its abstract. The abstract incorrectly
lists Frances, Eliza and Maria as separate people

Note 12: Reference in Kerry Evening Post, transcribed by Jane Wood, describes Catherine Moore as eldest daughter of Robert Moore and granddaughter of late
Hon. Ponsonby Moore & niece to late Marquess of Drogheda and Lord Ashdown
