Originally founded in 1706 as Marlborough Town, it was renamed in 1744 to Upper Marlborough and once again changed in the late 19th century to Upper Marlboro, probably named because a postal clerk felt that the last three letters did not properly fit on rubberstamps being used at the time. However, by 1893, the name stuck even though there has been proposed ballots over the years to change it back.
