Is he likely to be the same person?

How likely are these to be the same person. Mordick Robinson born abt 1791 ( as per 1841 census pob Penzance) He dies in 1847 name on death certificate Murdoch Robertson (same person) daughter Jane has the middle name Ennis, also grandchild carry the name Murdoch.

On Ancestry he has been linked to being Mordoch Roberston born abt 1782 Cromarty Parents William Roberston and Jean Innes. A second cousin found a faded note made by her later mother about her maternal grandparents, didn’t say much just said Miss Sincock/Robinson Edinburgh or roughly about that. If I have the right family these would be her grandparents both born Penzance, making her gt grandfather born Scotland. What dosnt help the situation is my gt grans birth certificate has Henry as father whereas her mother Amelia Jones Sincock married Thomas Robinson son of Mordick/Murdoch.
