About Lady Evelyn Murray of Dunmore

Zainab Cobbold (born Evelyn Murray, later Cobbold) (1867 - January 1963) was a Scottish noblewoman and convert to Islam. Born in Edinburgh in 1867, she was the eldest daughter of Charles Adolphus Murray, 7th Earl of Dunmore and Lady Gertrude Coke, daughter of the Second Earl of Leicester.

Evelyn achieved celebrity at age 65, in 1933, when she became the first British-born Muslim woman to perform the pilgrimage to Mecca. In 1934, a personal account of her trip was published entitled Pilgrimage to Mecca. An excerpt from her work can be found in Michael Wolfe's book One Thousand Roads to Mecca.
