It did not take long for the London Missionary Society (LMS ) to arrive in Singapore after Stamford Raffles of the British East India Company signed a treaty with Sultan Hussein Mahmud Shah on 6 February 1819 to establish a trading post on the island.

Samuel Milton set up a mission house on Bras Basah Road and was subsequently joined in 1822 by Claudius Henry Thomsen, who had transferred from the mission in Malacca.
