John Gumbleton was a son of Robert Gumbleton and Joan, nee Shotter. He was baptised 25 Apr 1647 at Britford, Wiltshire.

John was a blacksmith in the village of Britford.

In 1667/8, he married Eilinor Kent, at Britford. They had three children between 1668 and 1670. SHedied in 1672 and was buried at Britford.

John must have taken a second wife, Ann, though details of the marriage have not been found. They had a further 8 children before 1698. The later will of one of these, Jonathan, mentions his nieces and nephews, who were children of a son of John and Elinor. This establishes beyond reasonable doubt that the John, married to Elinor Kent was the same as the John who later married Ann.

John was buried at Britford on 15 Oct 1705. Letters of administration in the same year mention his widow Ann.
