Hi Lee

So the question I am grappling with is did the Ubaid originate from the south somewhere in or beyond the Persian Gulf or north from the Caucasus?

A bit late (I was busy) here are my suggestion:

South Caucasus the Leyla-Tepe culture- Presently Azerbaijan..... once again all the hints
points toward the area which nowadays is Azerbaoijan and nearby countries, maintain also the vision
on the importance that the Kuban River played to connect cultures from East Caucasus bording Caspian Sea,
and the West Bank of Caucasus bordering the Azov (and consequently Black) seas

Quote

The culture has also been linked to the north Ubaid period monuments,[4] in particular, with the settlements in the Eastern Anatolia Region (Arslantepe, Coruchu-tepe, Tepechik, etc.).
..........
It has been suggested that the Leyla-Tepe were the founders of the Maykop culture.

see here just to start a new pre-history trip in other directions: :))

About Ronnie Gallagher and I we were in contact for few years due to our experiences in Azerbaijan,
which we had in different fields (Ronnie about Oil Pipelines - I about Hollow Glass Factory).

NOTE:
Edited to add the Shulaveri-Shomu culture "" that existed on the territory of present-day Georgia,
Azerbaijan and the Armenian Highlands.[1] The culture is dated to mid-6th or early-5th millennia BC and is
thought to be one of the earliest known Neolithic cultures.""
