- "I wish to provide God for those who seek His salvation, not spoon feed His word to those who already have their own."
- ―Father Timothy to the gathered Homestead residents.[src]
Timothy hailed from London, but traveled to America to spread the word of God. He eventually found his way to the Davenport Homestead, where the Assassin Ratonhnhaké:ton met him while he was resting at the Mile's End, Oliver and Corrine's tavern.
There he explained his occupation as a pastor, following which the fellow Homestead citizens exclaimed their want of a church in the area. Corrine mentioned that she and her husband, Oliver, had been missing their Sunday Mass; Ellen added that she wanted her daughter, Maria, to read the Bible more. In response, Connor gave Timothy the £1000 he needed to fund the construction of a church.
Initially, some of the Homestead's residents were unfriendly due to Timothy's English roots, as they had encountered problems with the British Redcoats. However, they eventually accepted him; Father Timothy later presided over the wedding of Myriam and Maurice, and the funeral of Achilles Davenport, where he dubbed him the "old man on the hill", dropping a white rose onto his coffin while wishing him a well-earned rest.
Connor was initially wary of Timothy, and only became close to him after Achilles' funeral, expressing interest in attending a church service. The two eventually developed a habit of playing Fanorona together at the Davenport Manor, just as Connor and Achilles had done.
He could also be seen standing outside his house a short distance away from the church, where he often met with other Homestead residents to read mail.
