The Township traces its origins to George Willocks' purchase of land from Lenape Indians in 1708 and to the West Jersey Society purchase of one hundred thousand acres two years later.  Germans from the Palatinate arrived in the mid-18th century, and under the leadership of the Lutheran Bishop Muhlenberg, built a church, cemetery and home in what is now Oldwick.  The New Germantown, used for current Oldwick, first appeared in 1754 and survived until the rise of anti-German feelings during World War I, when the village was re-named "Oldwick", an Anglo-Saxon name for "Old Village".

Tewksbury Township was divided from Lebanon Township, and by Royal patent, became a township on March 11, 1755.  The name, Tewksbury, is believed to have originated from a connection with Tewkesbury in Gloucestershire, England.

New Jersey's oldest Lutheran Congregation's first service was
conducted on August 1, 1714, by the Reverend Justus Falkner,
the first Protestant minister ordained in America. It was held
in the home of Aree Van Guinee, a freed slave, who later
contributed land for the first church and a glebe for the pastor.

Baltes Pickel, who also attended the first service, built the
first church and contributed generously to construction of the
current church in 1749.
