Searching for birth record/ancestors of Richard Wheeler  (Poole, Dorset County, England) or any other related information please.

First have him listed in Newfoundland records on an apprenticeship list in Trinity NL in 1824 which states his arrangement was 'as agreed in Poole'.  Have Marriage record in 1831 to Sarah Clifford Barnes in Trinity, and then in future years, a Richard (sailmaker) appears in records in Greenspond Newfoundland which seems to be the same person.    A Merchant ticket signed in Poole in 1857 states he was born in Poole circa Aug 1810 and when not at sea, resides at Greenspond.

Hello & welcome.
I'm not seeing anything with regard to a Baptism for him.
There are a number of non-Conformist Chapels in Dorset & he may have been baptised at one of those, not necessarily in Poole.
It appears from what you say he went to NL with his Master as part of his contract which makes sense as there were close commercial links with Poole at that time.
