The word "board" usually applies to meals. Therefore, and based on relatives
who took in boarders, I would guess that a lodger simply paid for and
received lodging - housing, whereas a boarder received room and "board" -
his/her meals.

Happy hunting!

Subject: [DEV] BOARDER VS LODGER

Hello fellow listers,

Question of the week:

There must be a subtle difference between a lodger and a boarder. Do they
not both pay?

Have come across a Census with lodger crossed out, replaced by boarder!

cheers,
pamela
