As they were married in Olrig, this looks like a possible for John:

Baptised 25th April 1767, Olrig, Parents - William Steven and Elspet Sinclair

Do you have any details of their children - e.g. do these names crop up.
there is also a John bpt. Dunnet 1759 - parents John Steven and Elspet Dunnet.

There are two Janet Mansons bpt Olrig who could possibly be her:

24th June 1760 - father Donald Manson
15th Sept 1764 - parents - John Manson and Eslpet Manson

Again - the names of their children would help narrow it down.

I'm not sure if it helps us as there are too many Johns and Elspets but the IGI have the following baptisms to this couple. All Olrig:

9 April 1786 Elizabeth
25 Jun1788 Janet
23 Sept 1790 Katherine
1st Dec 1792 Ann
17 April 1795 - John
27 May 1798 Dorothy
10 June 1806 Isabella

Elspet is equivalent to Eliz/sabeth .No Donalds, No Williams  :-\
