ALLINGHAM, Mrs. Helen eldest child of Alexander Henry Paterson, M.D., was born near Burton-on-Trent, Sept. 26, 1848. The family removed to Altrincham, Cheshire, and after Dr. Paterson's death, to Birmingham. At the commencement of 1867, Miss Paterson came to reside in London under the care of her aunt, Miss Laura Herford, who was an artist, and who, some five years previously, had practically opened the schools of the Royal Academy to women. Miss Paterson herself entered the Royal Academy schools in April, 1867. She afterwards drew on wood for several illustrated periodicals, and eventually became one of the regular staff of the Graphic. She also furnished illustrations to novels running in the Cornhill Magazine—"Far from the Madding Crowd" and "Miss Angel." In the intervals of drawing on wood she produced several water-colour drawings. "May," "Dangerous Ground," &c., were exhibited at the Dudley Gallery; "The Milkmaid" and "Wait for Me" at the Royal Academy, 1874. "Young Customers," 1875, attracted much attention; as did also "Old Men's Gardens, Chelsea Hospital," at the Old Water-Colour Exhibition, 1877. Miss Paterson was married, Aug. 22, 1871, to Mr. William Allingham.
