The Jambos took the lead just after the interval through Mark de Vries, but youngster Duncan MacLean equalised for the Dark Blues with 10 minutes to go, only for Maybury (pictured) to strike three minutes later.
Craig Levein's side were dealt a blow in the 12th minute when influential midfielder Phil Stamp limped off with an apparent knee problem, and the hosts enjoyed the best of the first half.
MacLean and Mark Fotheringham went close to carving out good chances before the break, but found themselves crowded out by Scotland international Steven Pressley.
However, Hearts took only two minutes to open the scoring after the interval, Maybury whipping in a cross from the right for de Vries to head home.
The game erupted in the 66th minute following a clash between Lee Wilkie and Paul Hartley, with both sets of players confronting each other resulting in bookings for de Vries and Wilkie.
MacLean grabbed the equaliser in the 80th minute when the Jambos backline failed to clear, the stocky striker slamming the ball home from the edge of the box.
But Hearts had the last laugh three minutes later when Maybury fired a sweet left-foot shot into the corner of the net to earn the points and cement third position in the SPL.
