Re: The Bettencourt's of Madeira Island

Hi Raul,

I saw your follow up to Linda Bettencourt on the BETTENCOURT website. You seem to know something of the name's origins and history. I am at a complete loss regarding my ancestry. My father Ceasar Joseph B. was born in Guyana, South America, in 1899 and I was also born there in 1943. He said the family was from Madeira. I lived in Quebec for many years and the natives there insist that the name is an original french name. Can you add to this? Thanks much.

George Bettencourt
