|William Gumbleton was born in 1799 in Ireland. He married Margaret Murphy and they had seven children.
In 1837 the family emigrated to Australia. They travelled on the Lady McNaughton (alias Lady McNaghten) which left Cork on 5 Nov 1836 and arrived in Sydney on 26 Feb 1837. The ship was quarantined until 10 May 1837 at North Head Quarantine Station. Approx 56 children died from measles and a further 50 or so passengers are reported to have died from typhus.
An 1842 list of citizens in the Phillip's Ward in the city of Sydney includes William Gumbleton with a house in Gouldburn Street.
In 1854, William died intestate in Bathhurst, NSW, and his widow applied for letters of administration. These were granted in 1854.
