William Taylor b. 1800-1818 in Fife, Scotland and Elspet Adamson

Surnames: Taylor Adamson
I'm looking for a birth and family for William Taylor most likely born within 10 miles of St Monance and probably a fisherman.
I have found many Taylor families but none that fit exactly.
He is thought to have drowned (family story) before the birth of his daughter in 1839.
His child , Margaret Taylor has a registered baptism 30 July 1839 in St Monance, Fife. ( I have the doco) The mother of the child was Elspet Adamson b.abt 1820 and d. 15 Mar 1843 of consumption ( have the doco).
Mother and child are found together in the 1841 Census with George Adamson, and in 1851 the child Margaret with George Adamson
As the baptism was properly registered, I presume they intended to marry and that he had no other wife.
Margaret was raised by her widowed grandfather George Adamson from 1843 until probably when he died in 1855 and Margaret was 16
George was the brother of the prosperous fishing boat owner, William Adamson who is buried with his family in Dundee.
