Administrative HistoryLewen Street Tugwell (1835-1898) was, prior to becoming a missionary, a teacher. He was admitted to the C. M. College in 1856 and was ordained in 1860. On 18 June he went to British Columbia where he served until March 1862 when he returned home because of failing health. During his service, he baptised the first Tsimshean converts in 1861. His connexion with the CMS was closed in 1864.

From 1867 to 1873, he served as chaplain at Seville and in 1874 he became the Secretary and Director of the Spanish, Portugese and Mexican Church Aid Society and in 1878, became the perpetual curate of the Chaple of Ease, Tunbridge Wells. He married Harriet Greenwood, daughter of CMS missionary, Charles Greenwood.

Two of his cousins were also CMS missionaries: - Herbert Tugwell, Henry Charles Tugwell - and a third cousin, Sarah Lewis (nee Tugwell) was married to another CMS missionary, Henry Lewis.
