The first person with this last name Alejandro could find records for was Juan de Betanzos.

Alejandro explains how Juan’s father “Antoine” had come over to South America at one point looking for gold, which caused him to meet Margarita Céspedes. However, it wasn’t until after Margarita died when Antoine married her daughter Catalina Suarez did, they have a child together named Juan! It was then that ‘Betancourt’ was added to the Suarez family name to pay tribute and remember Margarita. Alejandro then talks about how he has been able to find records of many Betancourt’s around South America, including his ancestors, such as Pedro de Betanzos, who came from Spain.
