Crowcher in Nfld, Croucher in Halifax 1750s

I am searching for Irish fishermen who accompanied my ancestor David Redman from Newfoundland to Prospect Nova Scotia in the 1750s. One possibility is John Crowcher in the 1753 English Harbor census, or his daughters Ann and Sarah (married same day as my David Jan 16 1766) or son James Croucher married in St. Paul's Anglican church in Halifax in 1760-1780. Another is William Coolen who had David's neighboring fish plake in Prospect NS in 1780s. James Croucher was said to be murdered in St. Margaret's Bay around 1810. Does anyone know of any of these people, or how fishermen came to Newfoundland from Waterton and Wexford in the 18th century?
