Before the last few hundred years, the English language had no fast system of spelling rules. For that reason, spelling variations are commonly found in early Anglo-Saxon surnames. Over the years, many variations of the name Timko were recorded, including Timms, Timm, Tymms, Times and others.

First found in Kent where they held a family seat from ancient times before the Conquest in 1066.

To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Timko family emigrate to North America: Thomas Tims, who settled in Boston in 1715; Andrew Timm, who settled in Philadelphia in 1856; and Elizabeth Tims, who settled in America in 1744.
