Bordentown was a proposed township on the Brazos River about a mile below Thompson's Ferry in Fort Bend County. Sometime after 1837 Paschal Pavolo Borden surveyed the area for the projected settlement. He secured a license to operate a ferry across the Brazos, which he did for several years, but there is no evidence that a community ever materialized.

Adapted from the official Handbook of Texas, a state encyclopedia developed by the Texas State Historical Association (TSHA). It is an authoritative source of trusted historical records.
