 Post subject: Hawko/Hawco, Struck a brick wall and need Help!

My great-grandfather Peter Hawko/Hawco was born in Chapel’s Cove about 1855, give or take a few years either side. Peter married Margaret (Maggie) Murphy from Holyrood January 1877. I can’t find any record of his birth or trace his birth parents, siblings, or any of their names. I’m told the records went up in smoke when the Catholic Church burned in Conception Bay in the 1800s. My question is, where could I possibly look? Would the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of St. John’s have copies of these records? My understanding is the government of Newfoundland did not require the churches to report births, marriages, or deaths until around 1887. I’m stuck at my great-grandfather and can’t move forward in my genealogy search until I find out the names of his parents and siblings.

Please help me!
