|Ellen Gumbleton was a daughter of Samuel Gumbleton and Elizabeth Porton of West Grimstead, Wiltshire. Samuel was a Police Constable (according to Ellen's later Marriage Certificate). She was born in 1844 and baptised 1 Sep 1844 in Bulford, Wiltshire. |
Her father died when she was 8 and her mother continued to look after the family at West Grimstead, working as a dressmaker. The children had to leave school young, with Ellen's 13-year-old brother being an agricultural labourer and her 11-year-old sister being a servant by the time of the 1851 census.
In 1861, Ellen, aged 18, was working as a dressmaker, like her mother. We assume she must have gone to London—perhaps to work as a servant—and she was living at Moor Park Road, Walham Green, Middlesex, when she got married in 1866 to William Read, a gardener
In 1871, they were living in South Street, Brompton, Chelsea, Middlesex, with their two children, Harry and Rose: William was still a gardener.[1871 census: RG10/55 Fol.12, p16]
By 1891, she was now a widow and was still living in Brompton with her children: Harry, Charles, Robert, Florence and Walter.[1891 census RG12/31 Fol.191, p10] She was working as a charwoman.
