I think in 1881 he is a boarder at no 1 , 32 court park lane with a josephine and george lawrence . He is a bedstead base dresser, but others in the house are in the brass trade.
They also have another person described as a lodger. What is the difference between a lodger and a boarder ?

smtr & mikejee....Hi both. Thank you very much for the information.

mikejee, I've no idea whether there is any difference between lodger and boarder. I always thought they were the same. Would it be worth asking on a new post.....Florence
