Charles Gumbleton was a son of John Gumbleton of Shaftesbury and his wife Elizabeth, nee Arnold. He was baptised on 25 Dec 1824, at Shaftesbury St James.

In the 1841 census he was aged 16 and living with his family in Tanyard Lane, Shaftesbury, where his father was a tanner.

In 1850, he married Ann Prowles, in Shaftesbury. They had four children.

In the 1851 census, they were living in Bell Street, Shaftesbury, and Charles was a horsekeeper. His wife was a laundress.

By 1861, they were living in Malt Lane, Shaftesbury, with three of their children. Charles was a gardener. In 1871 they were still probably in the same house (now described as in “Malthouse Lane”). He was a general labourer.

They were still there in 1881 and 1891.

In 1900, they were mentioned in the Western Gazette:

Married Fifty Years.—On Tuesday last Mr. Charles and Mrs. Ann Gumbleton, of Victoria-street, celebrated their golden wedding. Mr. Gumbleton is 77 years of age, and his wife 75. They were married at Holy Trinity Church on October 2nd 1850, by the Rev. Mr Stanton, the then rector of the parish. By 1901 they had moved to 6, Victoria St, Shaftesbury.
Charles died in 1903 and was buried at Holy Trinity, Shaftesbury. His widow died in 1913.
