Maury County was named in honor of Major Shaw Maury, of Williamson County, who represented Williamson County in the lower house of the General Assembly in 1823-24, and again in 1842-43. He also saw military service under Gen. Jackson in 1812 and was connected with one of the best families of the county. The act creating the county passed the General Assembly November 16, 1807, and was entitled “An act to reduce Williamson county to its constitutional limits.” Section 2 reads: “Beginning at the above described point, it being the southwest corner of Williamson County; thence south to the Columbia road; thence with said road as it meanders to a point where the Indian boundary line saves the same; thence with said line to the dividing ridge that divides the waters of Duck River from the Elk; thence with said ridge to a point thirteen miles and fifty-six chains and a half east of the line of the congressional reservation hitherto run and marked; thence north to the Williamson County line; thence with said line, to the place of beginning, to be called Maury County.”

The survey was made by Henry Rutherford in the fall of 1807, by order of Peter R. Booker, Gideon Pillow, John B. Porter and John Lindey. These boundaries embraced a much larger area than now belongs to Maury County, it originally embraced parts or all of Lewis, Lawrence, Giles, Marshall and Bedford counties; as it is now limited it contains 386,309 acres. Section 11, of the act above quoted, declared Maury County to be a part of the Mero District, with as full and ample owners as other parts of said district. Another section of the same act appointed James Gideon to run the line between Maury and Williamson. He was allowed $2 per day for is services and was empowered to employ two chain carriers, the expenses of the above named work to be borne equally by Maury and Williamson Counties.
