Thomas Contee Worthington (November 25, 1782 – April 12, 1847) was a U.S. Representative from Maryland, nephew of Benjamin Contee.

Born near Annapolis, Maryland, Worthington received a limited schooling. He served as a captain in the War of 1812, and later as brigadier general of the Ninth Brigade of the Maryland Militia from 1818 to 1847. He studied law, was admitted to the bar in 1817, and commenced practice in Annapolis, Maryland. He later moved to Frederick, Maryland, in 1818 to serve in the Maryland House of Delegates, and continued the practice of law.

Worthington was elected to the Nineteenth Congress, where he served from March 4, 1825, to March 3, 1827. He resumed the practice of law in Frederick, and also served as member of the executive council in 1830 under the first State constitution. He died in Frederick, and was interred in Mount Olivet Cemetery.
