BORDENTOWN, TEXAS. 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.
