Daniel Alexander Williamson… painter

He was apprenticed as a child to a Liverpool cabinet maker, and moved to London where he stayed from 1849-1857 in Newman Street.

He tried portraiture first but soon abandoned this for landscape.

In 1857 he moved to No 2 Albert Cottages, Denmark Road in Camberwell where he stayed until 1860/1861 when he returned back to Lancashire and settled in the village of Warton-in-Carnforth.
