Other Interesting Points - Sir William Henry Veno was born William Reynard Varney in 1866 in Castle Douglas, Scotland. In August 1894, aged just 28 years, he moved to Canada and registered his company Veno's. Whilst there he invented Veno's Lightening Cough Cure and Germolene among others. After meeting and marrying Mary Pearson they both moved back to live in England, where William set up the Veno Drug Company of Manchester. William was knighted 15th June 1920 and became the Mayor of Altrincham. In 1925 fearing he had cancer of the lip, William sold his Veno Drug Company to Beechams for £500,000, a decision he later regretted.
