Several deaths after 1855 for Jean Adam but only this one in Renfrew.

ADAM
JEAN
71
MUIR
1855
570/ 15
Lochwinnoch

No match if other surname starts with 'D' as per marriage. No match in any county 1855-1891 birth 1785 +/- 5.

Ditto if other surname starts with mc.

Age not a fit for this one.

Thanks Barbara.

I thought the John 13 in 1841 was the John 22 in 1851 but am I wrong.

I didn't have John & Jean in 1851.

I think the 1851 in post #2 is correct but others are not.

Death 2399/1880 ADAMS ROBERT - JOHN - ISABELLA - SYDNEY * 24 Nov * aged 30

I think this is correct.

Marriage 30/11/1846 ADAM JOHN - ISABELLA BARR/FR3075 559/ 90 146 Abbey

Death in Vic. but don't know if parents are correct.

Death 1909 ADAM Jno 80 Jno - Jean McCRACKEN d. Melbourne East, Vic. #13259

1841 3 Maxwell Street, Paisley
Robert Adam 1801
Mary Adam 1806
John 1827
Janet 1829
Agness 1835
Robert 1837
James 1840

John a block cutter? and Robert a Silk HLW all born Renfrewshire. Did John and Isabella have any further children.

Occupation better; fits with naming patterns, but not the death you found.

There is a john born 1829 on Pinkerton Lane, Renfrew in the 1841 but no parents. He is living with a John Paterson aged 65 who is a labourer. Think stuck with this one, Dave.
