Tims History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The origins of the name Tims are with the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from the Old English personal name Tima or the Old German forename Thiemmo. Contrary to some popular theories, Tims is not derived from Timothy, since that name was not introduced in England until after the Restoration.

Early Origins of the Tims family


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

Tims Spelling Variations


The first dictionaries that appeared in the last few hundred years did much to standardize the English language. Before that time, spelling variations in names were a common occurrence. The language was changing, incorporating pieces of other languages, and the spelling of names changed with it. Tims has been spelled many different ways, including Timms, Timm, Tymms, Times and others.

Migration of the Tims family to the New World and Oceana


Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Timss to arrive in North America:
