Her father, William Robert Yeoward, worked as an engineer in a dry ice factory and married her mother, Victoria Hemmings, in 1872. Victoria, an Indian by birth, had been trained in music and dance. In 1879 the marriage ended, causing hardships to both mother and daughter, who later migrated to Banaras in 1881, with a Muslim nobleman, ‘Khursheed’, who appreciated Victoria’s music more than her husband. Later, Victoria converted to Islam and changed Angelina’s name to ‘Gauhar Jaan’ and hers to ‘Malka Jaan’.

She fell in love more than once. Her time with Amrut Nayak, a Gujarati theatre actor, was probably her happiest. But Nayak died very young, leaving Gauhar emotionally unstable. She also lost her mother in the same year, adding to her grief. Her personal secretary Saiyyad Abbas, who was much younger than her, was her source of strength during this difficult period. She later ended in a contractual wedlock with him termed as Muta in Islam. Others like Nimai Sen, the zamindar of Behrampore, Nawab Hamid of Rampur also found fleeting love from Gauhar. Gauhar Jaan WIki Bio Age
