Any info would be appreciated

Daniel, Martin or Patrick Foley of Distress (now St. Bride's
Lovell's Province of Newfoundland Directory for 1871 lists three Foley families in Distress (now known as St. Bride's). Daniel, Martin and Patrick Foley are listed as heads of these three households. Bearing in mind that my great-grandmother Alice Foley was born about 1875, it is likely that one of these three men is Alice's father; but, which one? Referencing various sources available online I have not yet answered this question. No doubt my online searches have improved but any further...

Canadian Passport Images? (Mary J Connors/O'Connor)
I have no images of my great grandmother Mary J Connors/O'Connor. She was born March 25, 1864 in St. Mary's, NL. Years later she moved to Sydney, NS, which was her last place of residence in Canada until coming to the US through Detroit on November 27, 1919. She lived the rest of her life near Detroit, Michigan before passing away on November 26, 1947.

It has occurred to me, however, that I HAVE been able to find US passport applications for ancestors in the US. Is there a place to...

Watton, Change Islands
My name is Sher, I am searching for WATTON at Change Islands. The farthest back I can go is the marriage of my ancestor, Robert WATTON, to Elizabeth OAKE at Change Islands in 1844. Can't find anything else prior to that.
Does anyone know if previous census of Newfoundland - previous to those on the Grand Banks site - are held at the Colonial Office at Kew? Does MUN have them? Where can I go to find the early census?
Robert WATTON does not appear in the British census...
