Name: Obadiah GUMBLETON  I0644 
Born: ca. 1644   
Occupation:Haberdasher & Seaman   
Obadiah Gumbleton was a son of John Gumbleton, innkeeper of Salisbury, Wiltshire, and his wife Mary, nee Lyme.

In 1647 his grandfather, John Gumbleton [H0021] died, leaving Obadiah a small bequest in his will. In 1659, he was apprenticed to John Bowtell Citizen and haberdasher of London for a period of seven years. It is presumed that he completed the apprenticeship and would then have been eligible to join the Worshipful Company of Haberdahers.

In 1667, he married Susanna Howse at St James Duke St, London.

In 1671, his father, John, died and bequeathed to Obadiah Gumbleton forty pounds and “one silver beaker marked with the character of a Saturn”. The money was to be paid “after his return into England”, so Obadiah must have been travelling abroad, at the time. The details of his overseas travels are not known; nor whether he did indeed return to England.
