Pryde/Pride in Whitburn/Bo'Ness, West Lothian, Scotland

Does anyone have any connection to Prides/Prydes in the Whitburn/Bathgate/Bo'Ness area in West Lothian? My ggg grandfather was David Pride, who married Marrion Pettigrew in New Monkland in 1838. Marrion (Mary) was born in Bo'Ness. They had a son, James, born in Bathgate in 1840. Then they appear in the 1841 census in Bothwell (Holytown), Lanarkshire. David must have died between 1841 and 1846, when Mary remarried. I have found a David Pride, born in 1799 in Whitburn, son of Robert Pride and Elizabeth Russell, and am wondering if this could be my ggg grandfather. My David is listed as 40 years old in the 1841 census, so this fits. It would also make some sense since his wife was from nearby Bo'Ness, and then they went back to Bathgate to have their son. I would appreciate any help anyone can give me.
