James Crossley Eno was the inventor of Eno fruit salts.
James Crossley Eno (1827/8–1915), manufacturer of patent medicine, was born in Newcastle, the son of James Eno (c.1793–1829), a general shopkeeper, and his wife, Elizabeth (1792/3–1874), daughter of John Jackson. After leaving school, he was apprenticed to a Newcastle retail chemist, and in 1846 became a dispenser at the infirmary there at £60 a year. In his spare time, he practised as a dentist. In 1852 he was able to buy a local chemist's business. He continued his dentistry work and sold some of his own products, among them a hair restorer. That year on 20 June he married Elizabeth Ann (d. 1907), daughter of John Edward Cooke, gardener, of Winlaton, co. Durham. They had two daughters and also a son, Crossley, who died of typhoid before reaching adulthood. http://www.cossar.co.nz/enos-fruit-salt.htm
