Charles GUMBLETON's birth was registered in the March quarter of 1856, in the Westhampnett registration district of Sussex, England. He is presumed to be the Charles Gumbleton, baptised 20 Jan 1856, in Eastdean, Sussex, the son of Robert and Eliza Gumbleton [source IGI].

However, in 1861, he seems to be the Charles Gumbleton, age 5, recorded as the son of Samuel and Caroline Gumbleton, in Chichester. Samuel should then have been has uncle rather than his parent.

The 1871 census records him, aged 15 as the son of Robert and Eliza Gumbleton, living with them in Eastdean, Sussex. By this age, Charles had left school and, like other members of his family, was working as a hurdle maker.

In 1881, he married Blanche HEWSON in the Westhampnett registration district (which includes the village of Eastdean). The census, later that year, shows them living together in Eastdean—he was still a hurdle maker.

They had two children—Cicely and Jessie. In 1891 Charles and Blanche were still in Eastdean although one of the daughters was a visitor with a family in Chichester.

Charles and Blanche remained in Eastdean, with him working as a hurdle maker, and appear as such in the 1901 and 1911 censuses. Charles Gumbleton died in 1917. His widow died in 1934.
