George Gumbleton was born in 1844 and baptised 21 Apr 1844 at Eastdean near Chichester, Sussex, a son of Robert Gumbleton and Eliza nee King. Robert was a hurdle maker which was a traditional woodland craft, done by placing upright sticks in holes in a log and weaving split branches between them. Hurdles were used to pen livestock such as sheep. Eastdean is a village in what is now the South Downs National Park, about 10 miles from Chichester.

In 1851, George was a scholar, living with his parents in Eastdean. By 1861, he had left school and himself become a hurdle maker.

He married Ellen Louisa Norrell in 1875 at Eastdean.

By 1881, he and his wife were living in Charlton Village, Singleton: both were hurdle makers. Charlton is about a mile west of Eastdean.

In 1891 they were at 17 Lavant Rd, Lavant, Sussex, and George was a "Gardener, Domestic". In 1901 they were at East Lavant (The Green) and still in East Lavant in 1911. East Lavant is on the edge of the present South Downs National Park, just north of Chichester.

George died in 1931 in Westhampnett Registration District, Sussex and his widow died in the next year.

George and Ellen had no children.
