Also looks like he was Bapts at West Linton. That makes a marriage in that church more probable.

If you have been using FS for your parish records ,then it is easy to go wrong .You need https://www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk/

It is good value, and you have issue found that you can check with.
Being in Newland is not to say Charles Lawson was born there.

At that time the population of Scotland was not huge, and the odds of another couple with same names is not in favour. I have only came across it once in 14yrs and it was South Yorkshire and Lincolnshire.But!
