The Anglo-Saxon name Timko comes from the Old English personal name Tima or the Old German forename Thiemmo. Contrary to some popular theories, Timko is not derived from Timothy, since that name was not introduced in England until after the Restoration.

Timko Early Origins



The surname Timko was first found in Kent where they held a family seat from ancient times before the Conquest in 1066.

The Great Migration



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.
