Ellen Gumbleton was a daughter of Morgan Gumbleton and his wife Mary, nee Hazell. She was born in 1867, in the Alderbury Registration district, which includes the village of West Grimstead, where the family were probably living. Around this time, her father worked variously as a labourer (1861) and as a waterman (1871). In 1871, the family were living in the nearby village of Charlton, near Downton, Wiltshire: Ellen was aged 4.

The family moved to Caernarvonshire, Wales, where Morgan worked as a gamekeeper. In the 1881 census they were living at Tu Gwyn, Llanllechid, Caernarvonshire: Ellen was aged 14.

In 1888, Ellen had an illegitimate daughter, Clara. Ellen has not been found in the 1891 census, but Clara was staying with her [Clara's] grandparents, Morgan and Mary.

In 1899, Ellen was married, in the Bangor district, to Martin Luther WARD, a boot manufacturer, businessman and philanthropist. The 1901 census shows them living in Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire. Ellen's daughter, Clara, is living with them but is described as Mr Ward's niece.

By 1911, Martin Luther Ward had retired from business and they were living in San Remo, Park Ave, Watford, Hertfordshire.

Martin Luther Ward died in Watford on 12 Dec 1913. His estate was valued at £8869-16s-6d. Ellen survived her husband, but her own death registration has not been found.
