Sorry, I mis-read your question slightly and referred to Times New Roman, and not Times Roman. Times Roman goes back a long time and the references at http://www.redsun.com/type/abriefhistoryoftype/ refer to the old Roman fonts. Also there is a reference to Times New Roman,  (Lardent/Morison, 1931).
If you look at: http://www.new-deal.com/hottips/font/cranfont.html, the page refers briefly
to Times Roman.
Also look at: http://www.truetype.demon.co.uk/articles/times.htm for Times Roman and Times New Roman history.
