Southey is named after a famous English poet, Robert Southey. Additionally, most of the streets of Southey are named after English poets.
According to the Canada 2006 Census, Southey's population was 711, which is a 2.6 percent rise from 2001. The median age was 42.2 years (males:40.9 yrs., females:44.5 yrs.) There were 295 private dwellings and the median household income was $44661.
The vast prairie land of the Northwest Territories was opened for settlement during the latter part of the 1880s and 1890s. Prior to this, the whole area was home to the First Nations people and their culture. Settlement by Europeans and Americans followed the river valleys and then the westward movement of the railway.
The first early settlement in the Southey area consisted of ranchers north and south of the present townsite. H.B. Chandler, one of the first settlers, filed on land on the south side of town in 1903. When the railway arrived in the area, he applied for the site to be named “Southey”, after Robert Southey, one of his favorite English poets.
From this point on, the town grew and developed with the appearance of the first stores, school, banks, elevators, barber shop, hardware and implement dealers, restaurants, lumber yard, telephone system, sidewalks, fire brigades and others in the 1905 - 1912 period. This growth allowed Southey to be incorporated in 1907-08. Subsequently, streets were named after other English writers and poets, so it is possible to travel down streets named Keats, Browning, Burns, Byron, Coleridge, Frost, Kipling, Milton and others.
The Robert Southey School is a K-12 school incorporating over 100 years of history. In 2006 Southey School celebrated its centenary.
The people of Southey and District have 4 main centers for religious congregations.
