Looking for parents of William BEATTIE born Dumfries 1796/8

Query by fishergate

William Beattie was born in Dumfries/hire between 1796-8 according to his census records.He married Elizabeth Newill by licence in Meols Brace, Shropshire in 1824 and was at that time a tea dealer.
They settled in Welshpool, Montgomeryshire. Records show he was a seed dealer and by 1841 a farmer.He is on the electoral register by 1861 and died in 1874. There seem to be links with Liverpool and his son William became a gardener and seed dealer in Knotty Ash from 1851-61. I have researched the Dumfrieshire baptismal records extensively and have narrowed William Beattie Snr's birth down to the son of either William Beattie/ Janet Walker or Andrew Beattie/ Margaret Robertson and I would be interested to link with anyone who has these Scottish ancestors.

Thank you for replying. Does this William Beattie belong to your family tree? Do you know whether he married in Scotland ? (Rebecca Watson ?)
I am interested in Mary McAdam because I have researched a William Beattie born to Andrew Beattie/Margaret Hebertson(27/11/1796) and one born to Andrew Beattie/Margaret Robertson(12/7/1798)Neither Margaret or Andrew are family names for his children but Mary is. And Robert crops up in the next generation.
Thank you for your reply I will try to research Mary McAdam. Which parish was this marriage ?
