James Henry Douglas (died 1 May 1905) was an Australian politician.

A pastoralist and the owner of North Yanco Station before entering politics, he served from 1880 to 1882 in the New South Wales Legislative Assembly for Murrumbidgee.

He later moved to Scotland, where he rented the seat of the Earl of Abercrombie, and died there, in Dunfries, in 1905.

Note:
•  The article refers to 'the seat of the Earl of Abercrombie', which is taken from the newspaper source. However, to the best of my knowledge, there is no Earl of Abercrombie. This could possibly be Baron Abercromby, but I am not aware of a 'seat' in Dumfries, which is where James Douglas apparently died.
