The name "New Maryland" has been used to describe a farming community and parish for over 100 years, but in the 1970s and 1980s several suburban subdivisions were constructed in the area. New Maryland was officially incorporated as a village in 1991. Virtually all the village's residents now commute to Fredericton.
