The church of Maire was mentioned in 1284. The village suffered from a number of floods, and on November 5, 1530, it drowned completely. When it was flooded again on November 2, 1532, it was abandoned completely. A small part of the area was reclaimed from the sea in 1694, but the village was never rebuilt.
