Note: The immigration records of when the Renwick family emigrated to Australia includes the information that James was 46 years of age at the time they embarked on board the "Hero". His headstone, however, is inscribed that he was 70 years of age at the time of his death in 1854. This would mean that he would have been born about 1784. He and Janet probably stated their lesser age to qualify for government assisted migration.
