Timms, Gill, was in 1838 a deacon in the Baptist Church in Eagle Street, London. Several of his papers, originally contributed to the Baptist Magazine, were published in a volume in 1819 as Remarks on God’s Foreknowledge. His hymns, (1) "Happy the men whose bliss supreme" (Happiness of the Godly), and (2) "Our years in quick succession rise" (Death Anticipated), were contributed to the Baptist New Selection, 1828.
