Hello,
     Marriage for John Adamson & Mary Kellie 1879 Anderston, Glasgow. Mary seems also to be registered under surname Tillie. (ScotlandsPeople)
     I'm quite familiar with farm names around Kinross but Bogbumhouse has me stumped! Can't find anything like it on National Library of Scotland (nls) Maps. Maybe the transcription is way out!

     John Adamson No: 2. I think this is the John Adamson in Reply 2 posted by Rosinish (Annie)
       1851. ES (East Side) Of Main St, Kinross.
     John Adamson  29 b Ceres, Fife. Tailor, Employing 6 Men.
     Jane        "       26 b Kinross.
     Helen      "         4 b Anstruther, Fife.
     Duncan    "         2 b Kinross.
     David       " 4mons b Kinross.

       1861. Main St, Kinross.
     John Adamson     41 b Ceres. Tailor & Clothier, 6 Men, 4 Boys.
     Jane M Couper Adamson 37 b Kinross.
     Helen Jackson Adamson  14 b Anstruther, Fife.
     Duncan Adamson  12 b Kinross.
     JOHN ADAMSON     9 b     "
     Ann          "              7 b     "
     James       "             5 b     "
     Thomas     "             3 b     "
     Wm.         "   10mons  b     "

       1871. High St, Kinross.
    *Jean Adamson   50 b Ceres. Tailor & Clothier. *Transcription Error for John.
     Jane M    "          47 b Kinross.
     JOHN ADAMSON 19 b Kinross. Pupil Teacher.
     Anna        "          17 b      "
     Thomas    "         13 b     "
     Alexander "           7 b     "
     Isabella    "           5 b     "

       1881. (Possible) Edinburgh St Cuthberts, Midlothian.
     JOHN ADAMSON Visitor 29 b Kinross. Mercantile Clerk Chemical.
     Elizabeth  "         Visitor 25 b Midlothian.
          Visiting David & Robina Currie.

     I can't find this John Adamson after the 1881 Census. He might be the John Adamson, age 30, along with Elizabeth Adamson, age 26, who emigrated aboard "John Elder" 31 Aug 1881, arriving Australia 19th Oct, 1881.

     If John Adamson & Mary Kelly are definitely the right couple, then their marriage certificate should name their parents, including maiden names of both mothers.
               Regards,     Dod.

I think it's possibly Bog Burn House!

Bog Burn is south of Kinross and north of Fruix, near Gairneybank
