Biography

Gaspard BOUCHER (~1599 - 1662)[1][2][3][4][5]

The paragraphs that follow are at best crude, and even whimsical, Biography attempt.

Son of Jacques Boucher, carpenter, and Françoise Paigné, Gaspard Boucher was born in France about 1598 in the Notre-Dame parish of Mortagne in Perche province. Gaspard married Nicole Lemaire, daughter of Nicolas Lemaire and Marie Castry, in France on Decembre 12, 1619 at the town of Mamers in Maine province and Le Mans diocese. Eight children were born from their marriage over a fourteen period, seven of whom were baptized in the Notre-Dame parish church in Mortagne. Among other recruited to re-settle to Canada by Robert Giffard, Gaspard, Nicole and four or five of their children sailed for Canada in the spring of 1635. On their arrival, accommodated by Champlain in the 'habitation', the family is established in the Notre-Dame-des-Anges seigneurie where Gaspard was engaged by the Jesuits. Their son Pierre Boucher was a pupil of the Jesuits who accompanied them in their missions, learned the Huron language, and later becomes Three-Rivers governor, then Boucherville founder. That which creates the bond, is Marguerite Boucher, the seventh child of the couple, baptized on July 28, 1631, with Our-Lady of Mortagne, becomes the wife on December 25, 1645, of the ancestor All Saints' day Toupin, said Bélair, born about 1616, of unknown origin. He is a boat Master, regularly transporting men and luggage between Quebec and Montreal, then has a farm in Three-Rivers. March 21, 1646, the ancestor Gaspard Butcher, becomes dealer of a 24-arpents farm in Three-Rivers. And, after 1662, one intends any more to speak, neither of Nicole Lemaire, nor of Gaspard Boucher, which one does not know where, when and how they died. The historians agree to saying that about 1668, the house burned with said Gaspard and his wife.

Gaspard first made a trip to New France in 1633/34. Then in 1635 Gaspard and his wife Nicole took their whole family to the new world. Their youngest daughter, Madeleine, was born during the crossing. At the age of 15, Pierre, Gaspard and Nicole's oldest son explored all parts of New France (?!) with the Jesuit missionaries. All the new settlers had to be of French Catholic religion to be selected by the French government as settlers of the new land. During these voyages of exploration, Pierre learned the languages of the Huron, Montagnais, Iroquois and Algonquin, and thus became able to act as an Interpretor. Because he was competent, honest and brave, the Governor of the colony gave him many responsilities.

I have Gaspard Boucher 1599-1662 born of Jacques Jean Boucher 1547-1611 & Francoise Paigne 1543-1611 mar before 1570. Their parents are cited as:

i. for Jacques Jean: Jean-Baptiste (Jean) Boucher 1522-1611 & Jeanne (Jehanne) Mercier 1530-. Followed by Jehan Boucher III (1495-1569) & Jehanne Bournier 1495-1560 then Jehan Boucher II 1495 -1569 & Alice Halsam 1475-1542 then Jehan Boucher I 1450-1540 & Marie Serre 1483-1540 then to Earl (Jean) Boucher 1430-1530.

For Jeanne Mercier it would be Jean Mercier 1485-156 & Etiennette Leblond 1485-1557 I could go on forever. I do not see a Roussin anywhere. What am I missing?

I checked with 2 other sources and Lianne, your are correct for Jacques Boucher and Françoise Paingé. However!!!

Gaspard's grand-parents were Jean Boucher and Jeanne Mercier.

Jean Boucher and Françoise Roussin would have married in 1540!!! Not connected this way.

I agree with Lianne's change.

The parents attached to this profile don't match the parents named in the biography, which comes from Fichier Origine. The parents in Fichier are Jacques Boucher and Françoise Paigné. If those are the correct parents, then the ones currently connected to this profile (Jean Boucher and Francoise Roussin) are actually Gaspard's grandparents.

Can anyone clarify? If there are no objections, I will change the parents to the ones from Fichier.
