John Gumbleton was a son of John Gumbleton and Jone (nee Cox) of Britford, Wiltshire. He was baptised 28 Feb 1612 at Britford.

In 1636 he married Mary Lyme at Salisbury, St Martin, Wiltshire. They had 8 children between 1637 and 1647.

In 1647 his father died and he was a beneficiary of his father's will, and in 1652 his mother's will left him £40 and other items.

In 1660, he was named as a trustee in the will of his brother Edmond.

He died in 1670 and was buried in St Thomas' church, Salisbury, Wiltshire.

At the time of his death, he was an innholder in Salisbury and his will mentions a lease for the Blue Lion, so this may have been the name of the inn.

Les Hatton received the following information about the Blue Lion from Robert Jago of Wilts and Swindon Archives:

The Blue Lion seems to have been a seventeenth century inn sign in Salisbury, one of several signs which successively hung on a Salisbury property over the centuries. Five leases dating from 1637 to 1743 in our Church Commissioners' collection (CC/CHAP/55/1-5) clarify its history. It was first called the Maidenhead, then the Blue Lion, and (by 1743) the Queen's Arms, and it was on the corner of New (later Ivy) Street and Brown Street. (The site is 0.3m walk from the Cathedral and is now occupied by an Ushers pub called the Queen's Arms of Elizabeth, from Google Earth)
