Morning Kay

You need to extract as much as possible from the Canadian and probably USA Archives as you can, if you are to have any chance of getting back across in to Scotland.

=============================

This result from the LDS Family Search site seems to be connected-

========================

On the same site, there are those Births which may or may NOT be the same family-

Agnes Patterson Hobson
Ontario Deaths,1869-1937 and Overseas Deaths, 1939-1947
birth: 21 Oct 1875 St. Catharines,​ Ont
death: 14 Feb 1930 Beach,​ Wentworth,​ Ontario,​ Canada
parents: Paterson,​ Margaret


Mary Patterson
Canada Census, 1901
birth: 1879 Ontario
residence: 31 Mar 1901 D,​ Wentworth (south/sud),​ Ontario,​ Canada
parents: Robert Patterson


Robert Patterson
Ontario Deaths,1869-1937 and Overseas Deaths, 1939-1947
birth: 19 Mar 1885;1855 Niagara-​On-​Lake
death: 22 Jun 1922 St Catharine'S,​ Lincoln,​ Ontario
burial: 24 Jun 1922 St. Catharines,​ Lincoln,​ Ontario,​ Canada
residence: 22 Jun 1922 St. Catharines,​ Lincoln,​ Ontario,​ Canada
parents: Robert Patterson


=================================

This looks like Robert in the 1851 Canadian Census-

Robert Paterson
Canada Census, 1851
birth: 1825 Scotland
residence: 1851 Bentick,​ Grey County,​ Canada West (Ontario),​ Canada


And William-

William Paterson
Canada Census, 1851
birth: 1828 Scotland
residence: 1851 Bentick,​ Grey County,​ Canada West (Ontario),​ Canada


The father does not stand out; and given the ages of Robert and William, it seem likely that James was born in the period, 1790 to 1810, rather than the one born about 1816.

=======================================

All of these take your potential Scottish researches back to well before 1855 when Statutory Registration started.

We are dependent upon the Old Parish Registers for that earlier era; and these were not kept in any really consistent manner, followed by many disappearing due to the ravishes of time, tide, fire, vermin, war etc, hence the need to extract as much as possible from the Canadian Archives.

=======================================

I would recommend you to get a copy of Robert's Death Record; and also the Death Record of his father James, as they may contain further details, Age and possibly Mother's Name, to help identify the family.

Were there any Land Grants involved; or military service?
