William Scott born c 1815 Selkirk died South Australia 1879

Trying to find the parents of this man who came on the Iron King in 1873 London to Port Adelaide just after his wife Elizabeth Armstrong had died in Roxburghshire. A trillion trees have his parents as Robert Scott and Agnes Mitchell but no proof of where they got it. His grave is at Flinders Rangers Council, South Australia. Children with him on ship are Mgt 29, Eliz 21, James 19, George 16 and John 15
What concerns me is that Robert and Agnes have all their children baptised and he isn't there. There is an early child born 1810 Jane who is not baptised and with the naming patterns William would have to be born around the 1813/1814 mark and there is a space between children but I need proof he is part of this family. Nots of pros and cons. Be grateful for help as usual.
