Douglas Vickers (1861 – 1937) was an English industrialist and politician. He was the son of Colonel Thomas Edward Vickers (1833–1915), owner and Director of the famous Sheffield firm Vickers, Sons & Co. Ltd., and Frances Mary Vickers, née Douglas (1841–1904).
He was married to Katherine Chetwynd, with whom he had four children: Oliver Henry Douglas (1898–1928), Felicite (1901- died soon after), Sholto (b. 1902), and Angus (b. 1904).
His father, Thomas Edward Vickers, commissioned John Singer Sargent to paint portraits of the family. Douglas' portrait was painted in 1914.
He is buried in the family plot in Brookwood Cemetery.
