GREEN,Western Newfoundland,GREENE,Placentia,Nfld.

My Green(e) family in Newfoundland gets more complicated.John Green,Point Verde,(from Boston,c,1778,d.1829)had brother Robert,and another relative at least,maybe Michael, in Nfld.
A Mr. M. GREENE bought large land at Point Verde on old French deed in 1803. John asked in will to be buried next to his brother.We assumed Robert. But we find no descendants of Robert.
Now one branch of family says John stayed in Point Verde and married Irish RC girl(true),but Robert stayed Protestant and moved to "other side of Nfld.", so probably West Coast,and started family there.
Do any GREEN families in Nfld. have an ancestor ROBERT GREEN between,say,1778 and 1829 (probably born about 1752)?
Especially with known connections to Boston and Placentia. Thanks.Ward.
