Married 1889
Poplar RD, Middlesex, England
Ann GAMBLETON is believed to be a daughter of James GUMBLETON, or GAMBLETON, and his wife Ann, nee LENIHIN. However, the index of birth registrations gives her name as Ann GAMBLING. She was born in 1867 in Deptford, Kent. Here father was a Londoner, but her mother was from Ireland.

In the 1871 census, the family (recorded as GRUMBLETON) were living at 103 Butler Street, West Ham and Ann was aged 3. In the following year, her father James died and the 1881 census shows the family, headed by the widowed mother, living at 5 Katherine Place, Poplar. The mother was working as a charwoman and Ann, aged 13, was at school.

Ann was married in the Poplar district, in 1889. Her husbands name appears, from the marriage index, to be Timothy BOWEN, but later records show that she was married to Edward SULLIVAN. This inconsistency has not yet been resolved.

The 1901 census shows Edward and Annie SULLIVAN living at 25, Cotton St, Poplar, Middlesex with six children and Ann's widowed mother. Edward SULLIVAN was a Boiler scaler.

The 1939 register shows Ann, now reverted to her maiden name of GAMBLETON, living in the Sage household in East Ham.

Ann GAMBLETON died in 1955 in East Ham.
