Marlborough Monthly Meeting covered the Friends meetings in early Stark County, Ohio. It was established in 1814, with two preparative meetings formerly part of Salem MM (Marlborough and Lexington) and one meeting formerly part of New Garden MM (Kendal). The only meeting established by Marlborough MM was Deer Creek.

At the time of the 1828 division, Marlborough MM was deeply divided. Deer Creek Meeting was almost completely Hicksite, and Kendal was majority Hicksite. The other two meetings (Lexington and Marlborough) were nearly evenly divided. The minutes of Marlborough MM prior to the 1828 division passed to the Orthodox Friends. In 1854, the clerks were both Gurneyites and took the minute books. These books were lost for decades and were not included in the information gleaned for EAQG volume 4. When the minute books surfaced later in the twentieth century, they were deposited in the Eastern Region archives at Malone College.
