His name appears variously as Curran, Hermon, Armon, Herman and Ormond in the records. He was a son of Samuel Gumbleton and Elizabeth nee Porton, born in 1844 and baptised 1 Sep 1844 at Bulford, Wiltshire. Samuel was a Police Constable.

By the 1851 census, when Hermon was 5, his father had died and he was living with his widowed mother in West Grimstead, Wiltshire, where she was a dressmaker.

They were still living in West Grimstead in 1861, by which time, Hermon had left school and become an agricultural labourer.

They were still living in West Grimstead in 1871, when their address is given as "Part of Woodford's Living, Church Road, West Grimstead". He seems to have remained in West Grimstead, working as an agricultural labourer and living with his mother, at least until she died in 1881. But by 1891 he had been admitted to the Alderbury Union Workhouse.

In 1901 he was an inmate in the Stockbridge, Hampshire, Workhouse. He was described as "Agricultural Labourer On Farm , Hants, Leckford", suggesting that he was residing in the workhouse but working on a farm. It is not known why he had been moved to Hampshire. Perhaps he had some disability that made it difficult for him to live alone but still allowed him to to do farm work, but we have no direct evidence for this.

He died in the Stockbridge Regiistration District, Hampshire, in 1905. He never married.
