Hi, I am new on this site and am researching my great grandfather, Charles John Brooke born 1869 in UK, either London or Great Yarmouth. He emigrated to the US in 1886, married Annie Dean Scovel (daughter of Col. James Matlack
Scovel, Camden, NJ) in 1889. I cannot find any birth records on my grandfather only a census done in Croydon Surrey for a Charles John Brooke and he was listed as living with a family named Baker and they listed him as "boarder", I do not know what that means, can anyone help me with this, thank you very much.
