Enoch Wedgwood (1813-1879) was an English potter, founder in 1860 of the pottery firm Wedgwood & Co of Tunstall, Stoke-on-Trent. He was a distant cousin of the famous potter Josiah Wedgwood, of Josiah Wedgwood & Sons but their two businesses were separate concerns.

Wedgwood married Jane Mattinson (1814-1880) in 1837. They had four children, one of whom died in infancy:

  • Edmund Mattinson Wedgwood (1840-1904), potter.
  • Charlotte (1843-?)
  • Alfred Joseph Wedgwood (1845-1846) died in infancy.
  • Alfred Enoch Wedgwood (1850-1894), potter.

Wedgwood & Co was renamed Enoch Wedgwood (Tunstall) Ltd in 1965 and in 1980 it was taken over by Josiah Wedgwood & Sons, who renamed it Unicorn Pottery.
