Looking for Harris family of Bridgetown Barbados

Amy Catherine Strapallan Van Bercheyck (widow) marries William Everett 4 August 1879
Amy believed to be born Amy Harris (1855), daughter of Granderson Yard Harris
Amy's first husband is Charles Van Bercheyck
Amy is born bridgetown Barbados (source England & Wales 1881 Census and Australian shipping records)

Has a daughter Vivena Uneta Van Bercheyck born 1875 in Lanarkshire, Scotland
Adopted daughter of William Everett (source England & Wales 1881 Census)

Think this is another branch of the family of Van Bercheyck that has a Harris connection. Not sure if the same Harris family but likely.
1871 England and Wales Census Liverpool, Lancashire, England

Ishmael (John) Bercheyck - Head - birth: 1842 - Demerara
Mary Bercheyck - Wife - birth: 1845 - Barbados
Jessie Bercheyck - Daughter - birth: 1860 - Demerara

Jessie dies in July 1875 and at 15 and is listed as the daughter of Mary and the grandaughter and heiress of the late Maud Harris formerly of Barbados West Indies.

My great-grandmother name was Adilla Harris. She was born in Bridgetown, Barbados circa 1893. She travelled to Brooklyn NY at July 27, 1910 when she was 17 years old. Her father was Robert Harris. Then she travelled to Panama around 1911 when she bore 3 children with Hortensio Botello: Edmundo (1912), Alfonso (1913), and Hermelinda (1916). Alfonso was my grandfather. Hermelinda passed away on 1919. She was only 26 years old.
