W. Butcher and Sons Ltd. was a British camera maker, formed as a pharmacy business by William Butcher in Blackheath in 1887. Photographic items were manufactured from c.1897 by sons of William, W.E. & F.E. Butcher. The name "Primus" seems to belong to this early company.[1]

A headquarters at Camera House, Farringdon Avenue, London EC has been set up by February 1902. Whilst manufacturing some of their own stock, much came by other makers, such as Hüttig and Ica in Germany.

In 1914, war prevented Butcher's German imports, and they joined forces with Houghton in 1915 to form theHoughton-Butcher Manufacturing Co. Ltd. The two companies continued to sell their own brands until their full merging on 1 January 1926 to form Houghton Butcher (Great Britain) Ltd., which became Ensign Ltd. in 1930.[2]
