Robert Adam was possibly born in Kilsyth, Stirlingshire, in July 1753.2 He was baptised in Kilsyth, Stirlingshire, on 29 July 1753; we have assumed this is Robert, even though the child was unnamed. However some published trees claim this was a stillborn child (hence unnamed) and that Robert was born in 1757 - but there is no evidence found for that date.3,2

He married Elizabeth Anderson in Scotland.1
