I am looking for information on John Frost Robinson.
He was born in Ireland, c. 21 October 1831
He was married in St.John's, NFLD, on 3 Jun 1862 to Agnes Rowe.
They had 4 children: James (1863), Elizabeth (1864), Mary (1866) and Elizabeth (1868)
Agnes died on 23 July 1872 in St.John's.
John and his children moved to Montreal and was re-married there in 1873.
John was a tailor in St.John's. He is listed in Lovell's directory.

I am trying to find out where exactly he came from in Ireland, and when he moved to NFLD, his exact birth date, parents' names, etc.

i have exhausted all of the knwon resources in Quebec and Canadian censuses.

Does anyone know if there might records in NFLD that might have mpre information, such as immigration records, newspapers, accounts of local businessmen, etc?
