The Blissville Parish was created from Burton and Lincoln in 1834. The Parish of Northfield was created in 1857 and Gladstone Parish was apportioned from Blissville in 1874

A large military base (CFB Gagetown) is located in the western part of the county south of the town of Oromocto. The county also hosts forestry and mixed farming. Burton is the county shiretown.

Located on the Saint John River immediately downstream (southeast) of Oromocto on New Brunswick Route 102, Burton is the shire town of the county and is the location of the Sunbury County court house.

In addition to the Sunbury County Courthouse, of historical interest is an old homestead near the Burton Bridge. Local accounts of the history mention a tree near the homestead used for an extrajudicial hanging in the mid-19th century. Several other aged buildings can be found in the area, including a mid-19th century house which stands across from the Burton trailer park on New Brunswick Route 102.
