It is said that there were a few settlers who arrived in the area in the 1917's. The first post office was established here in 1931 with Lillian O'Neil the first postmaster. There was a post office located 3 miles east next to graveyard and also at Marina Post, 1 1/2 miles west and 1 mile north of Worsley run by Cliff Robertson. A small settlement was established here around 1947. The community was named after Eric Worsley, a British Calvary Officer, who arrived in the area before World War I. He was involved with the Fur Trade when in the area. Bill Whitford served under Captain Eric Worsley and named his first son after him. It is said that Whitford was also responsible for naming the community "Worsley."
