She was a contralto and the paternal grandmother of the actor and film director Mel Gibson.

Tuross Head, from the Narrows east, was owned by the Mylotts, wine merchants and shipping fleet owners. It was not until well into the 20th century that the headland was subdivided for building.

Eva was born in September 16, 1875 in the stone house built by her father Patrick Mylott in 1870 on Tuross Head. Discovering his daughters rich contralto voice at an early age, Mylott leased his farm in 1883 and invested in a Sydney wholesale liquor firm. Eva first went to Madame Christine, an internationally known Canadian opera singer turned nun. then to the teacher Kowalski. She matured slowly but in 1897 was a rising young star in the Sydney Musical world. Encouraged by the great Melba Eva was to leave for Europe in 1902.
