This word came from Middle English immediat, from Old French, from Late Latin immediatus. Etymologically, Latin in-, "not" and the past participle of mediare, "to be in the middle".

In 1392, imediat meant: "intervening, interposed"; later, in about 1410, it had the meaning of "absolute, conclusive"; then, probably before 1425, immediate took on the meaning of "nothing between, direct".

With reference to time, the meaning of "coming at once, done without delay", is found in 1558.
