High Timber Street
   South out of Upper Thames Street at No. 42, and extending east and west between Broken Wharf and Brook's Wharf (P.O. Directory). In Queenhithe Ward.
   First mention: O. and M. 1677.
   Former names : "la Tymberhethe," "Tymberhuth," 56 H. III. (Anc. Deeds, A. 2684, and Ch. I. p.m.). "Timberhethe," 1294 (Ct. H.W. I. 114). "Street called Tymberhuth," 11 Ed. II. (Anc.

"Timber Hithe" or "Timber Street" (Anc. Deeds, A. 2584, and S. 363).
   The "Timberhith" seems to have covered a considerable extent of ground and included not only the street of the name but a wharf called "Tymberhyde" adjoining Pudding Lane east and granted 26 H. VI. by the Dean and Chapter of St. Paul's to the Fishmongers' Company (H. MSS. Com. 9th Rep. p. 18).
   So called from timber being brought to land and warehoused there.
   "Timberhithe" is identified with Broken Wharf in H. MSS. Com. 9th Rep. 18.
