Adam-2018 and Forbes Adam-13 appear to represent the same person because: Clear duplicate. Last name may require some discrepancy on whether it is Forbes Adam or just simply Adam. Since the baronetcy seems to fall under the name Adam, it probably should be Adam, but I will let someone more well-versed in this field decide. Here is a Wiki page on the Adam baronets: [1]
