Delran Township was incorporated as a township by an act of the New Jersey Legislature on February 12, 1880, from portions of Cinnaminson Township. Portions of the township were taken to create Riverside Township on February 20, 1895.[20]

The township's name is a portmanteau of the names of the two waterways that have their confluence here: the Delaware River and Rancocas Creek.[21][22]
