Dates of existence
The Reverend Charles Montgomery Tate (1832-1933) was a Methodist minister who was involved in work with the First Nations of the Fraser Valley and Vancouver Island.
He was born in Northumberland, and arrived in Victoria, intending to go to the Cariboo gold fields. Instead, he went to Nanaimo and taught English to the Native Indians of the area. In 1879 he was ordained at the first Methodist Conference in Victoria. He went on to publish portions of the Scriptures in Chinook, and established the Coqualeetza Residential School in Sardis. He retired in Victoria in 1910.
