The first documentary mention was made in 1350 as Burchardis. In 1785 Borchertsdorf is referred to as a royal farming village with a church and 27 fireplaces (households), which belongs to the Soldau domain office.
As a result of the attack on Poland in 1939, Borchersdorf came to the Reich territory in violation of international law and was incorporated into the Neidenburg district. Towards the end of the Second World War , Borchersdorf was occupied by the Red Army in January 1945 . In the summer of 1945 Borcherdorf, along with the southern half of East Prussia and all of West Prussia, was placed under Polish administration by the Soviet occupying power . The Poles introduced the place name Burkat for Borchersdorf . Unless German residents had fled, they were subsequently expelled from Borchersdorf by the local Polish administrative authority .
The place was the center of a parish , in which Polish was also preached in the 18th century . A new church was built between 1854 and 1856. The villages of Fylitz, Klenzkau, Niostoy and Skurpien also belonged to the evangelical parish Borchersdorf until 1945 .
