An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright © 2000 - 2016

Origins Available: Dutch, German


The Dutch surname Timmerman shares the same root as the German surname Zimmer, from the German for "carpenter." In the northern part of Germany, especially between Bremen and Königsberg, which borders the Netherlands and where a dialect of Low German very similar to Dutch was spoken, the surname Zimmer appears as Timmer.

Timmerman Early Origins



The surname Timmerman was first found in Bettingerode near Brunswick, where Conrad Tymberman was recorded in 1332. Records for the year 1350 mention one named Timberlaghs from Haldensleben.
