 George Alexander Douglas, I.S.O., the Superintendent of the General Penitentiary died on the 15th of April 1908, aged 69. His early life was passed in the Royal Irish Constabulary and in the English Prison Service. On the re-construction of the prison system of Jamaica he was selected to take charge, and served here for 25 years. It seems his remuneration was '400l and quarters'.  He was an Irishman by birth and a Roman Catholic.

He was the father of Major General Henry Edward Manning Douglas VC
