Houghton

 English Banjo Maker

George Houghton made Banjos in Birmingham at a factory in Heaton Street. Although he started with his own brand, he quickly became one of the most prolific 'makers to the trade' and many banjos made by Houghton were badged and branded by non-manufacturing retailers.

In 1962 the George Houghton & Son company closed in Birmingham and moved to London to merge with Dallas
