I just came across your post from a few years ago. I too am interested in the Bittancourts of Saltspring. I am not a descendant but of James Harris Jr. who was married to Matilda Naukana and then to Mary Bittancourt the daughter of Jose Estalon. It seems they were married on Saltspring and later moved to Burnaby (a Vancouver suberb) and that is where they died. Jimmy died before Mary, sometime in the 1940's. And so she died as Mary Harris of Burnaby a couple of years later. I'm pretty sure I did see her death record on the BC Archives site, but I've never actually pulled that one. I've always wondered if they had children together.
Have you ever looked at the Saltspring Archives website? It's very good, but for all the influence the Bittancourts had on the Saltspring early settlement, there is scarcely any info on them there.
Anyway, if you've managed to find any other living descendants who might know something of my Jimmy Harris and your Mary Bittancourt, I would dearly love to hear it!
