Allen Edmund Douglas was an amateur artist.

 

He was born on 4th March, 1835, at Clones, Co. Monaghan, where his father Edmund Alexander Douglas, who had formerly been in the army and in the Royal Irish Constabulary, was a Resident Magistrate.

 

He qualified in medicine in Edinburgh, and was a dispensary doctor at Glasslough and afterwards at Warrenpoint, where he lived for twenty-five years much liked and respected.

 

He found relaxation from his professional work in drawing and painting which he pursued with extraordinary zeal, working early and late during his spare time. He lived a retired life; his simple and puritanical nature kept him aloof from the world, and the few holidays he took were spent in sketching expeditions among the Mourne Mountains. He had never received any instruction, and his art was the spontaneous expression of his love and study of nature which formed his only school. He also practised carving and modelling, was fond of music, and was interested in antiquarian studies.

 

He had two children, Mary Emily and Anne Amelia

 

He died at Warrenpoint on 25th April, 1894.
