      My name is Caroline Timm from Malawi and I believe my great
      grandfather John Arthur Timm came from St Helena before settling in
      Malawi. He had a Brother James Arthur Timm and he settled in
      Zimbabwe. I would like to trace any family that I might still have
      there. My great grandfather, my grandfather and my father have all
      passed away but I still have an Uncle and Aunty's from my fathers
      family.
      Thank you

            Hello Caroline.  Saw your message on the St Helena Forum from some years ago. My great grandfather was Francis Robert TIMM, who I believe was father of your John Arthur TIMM.  My grandfather was Henry Charles TIMM, a brother of John.  Would love to hear from you. Best wishes, Janet Suffield.

              Hi Caroline and Janet,

              Not a direct relative but my great x 3 grandmother, Louisa Casar, daughter of Samuel Casar an emancipated slave, married a Richard Tim (sometimes spelt with a double "m") on 8 March 1851. Richard was 22 years of age, while Louisa was 23, and the wedding certificate states Richard was a carpenter. On his baptismal certificate of 9 April 1828, Richard's parents are named as Francis and Constantia.  Francis was a baker.  Richard was born on 12 February 1829. Francis and Constantia had at least two other children: Francis Jnr. born in December 1818 and Phoebe, born 5 April 1827.
               
              The marriage did not last long. I've not have a date or a cause for Richard's death, but he was buried on the 7 January 1852. Louisa then re-married Samuel Gardner - my great x 3 grandfather - a soldier on the island, on 10 July 1852. On 2 February 1853 they had a son and named him Richard William Gardner. Perhaps naming the child Richard was in memory of Louisa's first husband as it is not a common name in my family.

                  Thank you for the message and info.  Very interesting and I don’t think I had much information on Richard Tim (not checked my notes fully yet). Yes there were more children of Francis and Constantia. To date, I have Francis born c. 1818, John 1820, Henry John 1823 (my direct line, I believe), Joseph 1825, Phoebe 1827, Richard 1829 and Harriet 1831.  I hope to check out my notes over the next few days because I know I have more info on some of these siblings.  I do remember finding Louisa’s marriage to Samuel Gardner.  Lovely to have contact with their descendants.

                    That's great, Caroline. Do you or Janet know anything about the early history of the Timm family on the island? Reason I ask is that Louisa Casar was the daughter of Samuel Casar and his wife, Margaret, both of whom were slaves on the island. I just wondered if the Timm family came from a similar background.

                          That's great, Caroline. Do you or Janet know anything about the early history of the Timm family on the island? Reason I ask is that Louisa Casar was the daughter of Samuel Casar and his wife, Margaret, both of whom were slaves on the island. I just wondered if the Timm family came from a similar background.

                          Best regards,

                          John

                          Hello John

                          Thank you for the useful information, I will forward this information to my dad's cousin who is trying to put the Timm family try together. I will have a look to see if any of these names appear on the tree and will share with you what we have so far

                          Hi Caroline and Janet,

                          Not a direct relative but my great x 3 grandmother, Louisa Casar, daughter of Samuel Casar an emancipated slave, married a Richard Tim (sometimes spelt with a double "m") on 8 March 1851. Richard was 22 years of age, while Louisa was 23, and the wedding certificate states Richard was a carpenter. On his baptismal certificate of 9 April 1828, Richard's parents are named as Francis and Constantia.  Francis was a baker.  Richard was born on 12 February 1829. Francis and Constantia had at least two other children: Francis Jnr. born in December 1818 and Phoebe, born 5 April 1827.
                           
                          The marriage did not last long. I've not have a date or a cause for Richard's death, but he was buried on the 7 January 1852. Louisa then re-married Samuel Gardner - my great x 3 grandfather - a soldier on the island, on 10 July 1852. On 2 February 1853 they had a son and named him Richard William Gardner. Perhaps naming the child Richard was in memory of Louisa's first husband as it is not a common name in my family.

                          Best regards,

                          John Gardiner
