Thomas Gordon (September 23, 1778 - 1848) was a Trenton-based judge, lawyer, surveyor and cartographer. Gordon was born in Amwell New Jersey and relocated as a young man to the larger city of Trenton. He studied law and mathematics and subsequently set up practices, as was not uncommon at the time, in both law and surveying. He is best known in cartographic circles for his production of an impressive wall map of New Jersey - the first government sponsored state map of that state. Gordon died and was buried in Trenton, New Jersey.
