|Stephen Gumbleton was a son of James Gumbleton and his wife Mary Ann, nee Janman. He was born in East Meon, Hampshire, and baptised on 2 Nov 1823 in West Meon. Hampshire.
The 1841 census shows Stephen, aged 15, living with his parents and siblings in the village of Aldingbourn, Sussex (about 30 miles from West Meon).
In the 1851 census, aged 27, he was a lodger with a family in Patching, Sussex.
On 11 October 1854, he joined the 94th Regiment of Foot at Rochester, Kent, as a private, giving his age as 24 years. However, his military career was not a distinguished one: after four months service, he went absent without leave and was, afterwards imprisoned for a month. He deserted in May 1855 but returned to the army in 1859 and was again imprisoned. He finally left the army in 1861, but his reckonable service since 1854, taking account of absences, desertion and imprisonment, was only one year and a hundred and fifty-five days.
In the 1861 census he was at the Barracks in Medway, Kent, during a short spell of actually serving as an army private in the 94th Foot.
He died in 1880 in the Preston area of Lancashire. He never married.
