The property of Maryfields stands on 130 acres granted to Patrick Cullen in 1823.

Maryfields remained in the hands of pioneering families until 1930 when Miss Sarah Mary Keane (niece of Miss Georgina Rudd, one of the early families of the area) transferred the property to the Franciscan Brothers, a Catholic order.

The first Franciscan community moved to Maryfields on 7 September 1934 and became known for its annual Stations Of the Cross ceremony. For the 1937 ceremony, the Government created the Maryfield Station on the Camden Tramway (decommissioned in 1962), which had special trams for the following ceremonies. The ceremonies lasted for 50 years.

The Poor Clare nuns moved to the site in 1964.
