Looking for McAndrew in Aberdeenshire/ Perthshire

Query by Henny

I would love help in researching the "PETER MCANDREW'S" of Aberdeenshire and Perthshire- which is as far as i can get with my MCAndrew family tree research.
1) Peter William Mcandrew born 1896 in Fyvie Aberdeenshire who was Estate Clerk and Head Gardener at Fyvie Castle. His address was "The Cottages, Fyvie Castle" He died of "Gas Poisoning" after WW2
His wife Annie McDonald was a maid ( not at Fyvie Castle). She went on to marry John Hamilton after Peter died
2)Peter McAndrew Born 1866 in Pithochry, Perthshire.He was a Domestic Gardener. In the 1901 Census his wife was listed as "Helen".....but the family say there was never a "Helen" in the MCAndrew family tree.This "Helen" was listed as being born in 1851 in Logie Bachan Aberdeenshire.
I'm hoping someone can give me further details to help keep my research on-going.

There is a marriage listed on Scotlands People site for Peter McAndrew to Helen 1894 Fyvie Aberdeenshire.

Unfortunately this is a pay to view site, but worthwhile in searching for Scottish information. The certificate will give you more details.

Do you have parents for Peter McAndrew b1866 Gardner.

I had a quick look around and found 4 Peter McAndrew's in Census all born around 1866 Perthshire all gardners.

1. born Dull Father James mother Ann
2. born Aberfeldy
3. born Perthshire
4. born Moulin father Peter mother Elizabeth

all these men were Gardners on different estates.
