What may be confusing you is that, in parts of New Brunswick, the surname, Roi-Roy, was 'translated' in to the English form, King. For example, Charly Roy m. Maine 7JUN1913 Eva Dionne. She was from Calano, ME and he was from Connor, ME.

Acadia meant New Brunswick and Nova Scotia (mostly.) Here New Brunswick is likely meant. If Charles Roy/King was married in 1913 the he was likely born ca. 1888 give or take. Knowing at least a close approximation of his birth-date certainly would be useful. There are just to many possibilities. For example, in NB in 1891 there were:

       Surname       Given Name       Age       Province       District Name       Sub-District Name
1.       King       Charles       14       New Brunswick       Northumberland       North Esk
2.       King       Charles       38       New Brunswick       York       Fredericton St Ann Ward
3.       King       Charles       17       New Brunswick       Northumberland       Chatham
4.       King       Charles       42       New Brunswick       Saint John City       Sydney Ward
5.       King       Charles       71       New Brunswick       York       Douglas
6.       King       Charles       15       New Brunswick       Westmorland       Salisbury
7.       King       Charles E       29       New Brunswick       Charlotte       Grand Manan
8.       King       Charles E       7       New Brunswick       York       Kingsclear

1.       Roy       Charles       48       New Brunswick       Gloucester       Beresford
2.       Roy       Charles       36       New Brunswick       Gloucester       Beresford
3.       Roy       Charles L       11       New Brunswick       Charlotte       Milltown
4.       Roy       Charlotte       53       New Brunswick       Gloucester       Caraquet

1.       Roi       Charles       4       New Brunswick       Gloucester       Beresford

Charles E. King age 7 in Kingsclear Parish, York Co., NB seems a possibility (as that was one area that Roi-Roy was changed to King) but how to tell? Charles E. King, b. ca. 1884, was the son of Benjamin (ca. 1849) and Mary (ca. 1861) King. I suspect they were of French origins as the were Roman Catholic and Mary was b. in Quebec. I do not see them in 1901 and 1911 and they could easily have moved to Maine. In 1881 Benjamin (ca. 1848) was indicated as French. He was the s/o Joseph (ca. 1818) and Elizabeth (ca. 1823) King. In 1871 Benjamin was b. ca. 1851. The family is listed twice, and in the second entry he was b. ca. 1850.

A son of Benjamin and Mary in 1891 was Joseph B. King (ca. 1886.) Also with them were a widow, Mary Goodine (ca. 1826) and Mary D. Goodine (adopted, ca. 1881.) Next door lived Joseph (ca. 1818) and Elizabeth (ca. 1826) King with Joseph Goodine (ca. 1875, adopted.) Perhaps Mary Goodine was Benjamin's mother-in-law. At:
however, Mary's maiden name is Thomas.
