Oughterson, Arthur b West Kilbride 1762

Sons of the Rev Arthur O of West Kilbride Ayrshire. His brother James b1772 is in my direct line and I have what I need for him and other siblings but there seem to be a number of Arthurs (mine b1762). Did he go to Barbados and there marry Mary Ann Sheafe (d1803) and later Helen Robertson back in Greenock in 1817. The family were in the sugar business in Greenock so it fits but I would like more clarification on Arthur if anyone can help. There was certainly AN Arthur O in Barbados at the time and a slave revolt in 1816 which could explain a return to Scotland.
