An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


Timme is one of the oldest family names to come from the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is derived from the Old English personal name Tima or the Old German forename Thiemmo. Contrary to some popular theories, Timme is not derived from Timothy, since that name was not introduced in England until after the Restoration.

Timme Early Origins



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

The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Timme were among those contributors:
