Jane Gumbleton was a daughter of Samuel Gumbleton (or Gumbelton) and his wife Elizabeth, nee Porton. Samuel was a police constable in the Wiltshire village of West Grimstead, a few miles from the city of Salisbury. Jane was born in 1839, the third of six children, but her father died in 1850, when she was only about 10 years old. The 1851 census shows the family living in West Grimstead, headed by Jane's widowed mother, who was described as a dressmaker. Jane was 11 years old and had already left school and was working as a servant.

Ten years later, in the 1861 census, Jane was still living at home with her mother: both were dressmakers, as was Jane's sister, Ellen. On 7 Jun 1862, Jane married John Targett, the labourer son of another policeman. John and Jane moved to West London, where John was a foreman at Brompton Cemetery, and Jane continued to work as a needlewoman.

John Targett died in Kensington in 1892 and in 1897, the Widowed Jane married Mark Bundy, a brickmaker, in West Grimstead.

She is probably the Jane Bundy who was buried 10 Jun 1911 at West Lavington, Wiltshire, aged 72.
