The Maryland Journal, and the Baltimore Advertiser began publication August 20, 1773 [v. 1, no. 1] and ceased December 30, 1794 [v. 21, no. 63]. It was published weekly, August 20, 1773-March 11, 1783; semiweekly, March 14, 1783-October 29, 1793; triweekly, November 1, 1793-October 15, 1794; and semiweekly, October 17-December 30[?], 1794. It was also published as Maryland Journal and Baltimore Advertiser, August 21, 1776-1794, the Maryland Journal, and the Baltimore Advertiser, August 20, 1773 to August 28, 1776[?]; and as the Maryland Journal. The newspaper merged with Edward's Baltimore Daily Advertiser (Baltimore: 1793) to form the Maryland Journal, and Baltimore Universal Daily Advertiser (Baltimore: 1795).

The Maryland Journal was established by William Goddard August 20, 1773, the first newspaper to be printed in Baltimore. Goddard published the paper until May 10, 1775 when his sister, Mary Katherine Goddard, became editor and publisher. She continued as sole proprietor until January 6, 1784, when William Goddard again was the publisher. Edward Langworthy became a partner in the business with the issue of January 25, 1785, for one year. Goddard formed another partnership with James Angell August 7, 1789. By February 22, 1793, Angell was publisher. Angell took Paul J. Sullivan as a partner November 1, 1793, but Angell was sole proprietor with the issue of June 11, 1794. Angell sold his interest in the Journal to Francis Blumfield and Company October 31, 1794. The paper was published until January 1, 1795, when it merged with Edwards's Baltimore Daily Advertiser to become Maryland Journal, and Baltimore Universal Daily Advertiser.

The Goddards, William and Mary Katherine, were both well-known printers whose contributions to printing go far beyond the Maryland Journal. William Goddard's revolutionary activities included establishing a continental postal system.
