Gaspard Boucherville, QC and Nicole Lemaire were two of the premier colonists of QC having emigrated to QC with Giffard and The Company of the Hundred Associates, granted their charter in 1627. Gaspard and his wife brought with them their five surviving children, Pierre, the eldest Nicolas who was 24 years old and unmarried when he died in Trois-Rivers in 1647 and their three daughters, Marie, Marguerite and Madeleine who, later on married into respectively, the LaFond, Toupin and Beaudry families. The children had all been baptized at the Church of Notre-Dame of Montagne, Perche, France with the exception of Madeleine who, to all appearances, was born during the the course of the voyage on the ocean. The registers of Montagne, Perche, France, and of QC have no record of her birth but the census of QC taken in 1666, gives her an age of about 36 years.

According to Jette Page 136. He was a carpenter like his father. Gaspard and his wife were two of the first colonists of Quebec, having emigrated with Giffard and the Company of the Hundred Associates. Their charter was granted in 1627.

The name Boucher in French translates to Butcher. At some point in history, someone in that family had been a butcher, and that gave the family its surname.

Gaspard Boucher was a wood joiner in the city of Mortagne. He learned his trade from his father, Jacques. He married Nicole Lemers before 1620. They had at least 8 children, four of whom left posterity in Canada, a son and three daughters. Gaspards father had received a share of a seigneury in France and this was passed on to Gaspard. He sold this share, and signed this selling document with a flourish. Gaspar had many descendants who were seigneurs.

Perche, France was the birthplace of Quebec. It is from this town that Robert Giffard lived an recruited settlers for the first seigneury of the colony in 1634. It is likely that Gaspard intended to go with these first settlers who accompanied Giffard to Beauport, Canada. But it took him until the following spring to finish selling his properties and arranging his affairs. He sailed in 1635 on a ship under the command of Captain de Ville.

Once in Quebec, Gaspard worked as a wood joiner for the Jesuits at Notre-Dame-Des-Anges. His relationship with the Jesuits was to shape the history of his family and Canada. His son, Pierre ( 1622-1717) received his education from the Jesuits. When later events in the dramatic life of Pierre brought him to Trois-Rivieres, Quebec, Gaspard and his family followed him. In March 1646 Gaspard received a grant of land next to the property of his son-in-law Etienne de La Fond. We do not know the history of Gaspard and his wife from that time until their deaths. His house burned, and some assume he died in that fire, but there is no evidence to support this. Both he and his wife are absent from the 1666 census.

Pierre Boucher, fils de Gaspard et de Nicole Lemaire, a été baptisé à Sainte-Jean-de-Mortagne, au Perche, le 1er août 1622. Il arrive en Nouvelle-France en 1635. Il est tout d’abord compagnon des missionnaires jésuites chez les Hurons. Il entre par la suite au service de la compagnie des Cent-Associés aux Trois-Rivières.

En 1649, il épouse Marie-Madeleine Ouébadinoukoué, une amérindienne chrétienne. Ils auront un fils qui décédera en bas âge.

Devenu veuf assez tôt, il se remariera avec Jeanne Crevier, fille de Christophe Crevier et de Jeanne Emard, le 9 juillet 1652.

Pierre occupera le gouvernement des Trois-Rivières à plusieurs reprises et il recevra des lettres de noblesse du roi Louis XIV en 1653.

De son mariage avec Jeanne Crevier, il aura 15 enfants qui perpétuèrent ainsi son nom à travers l'Amérique.

Vers 1769, Joseph Boucher et son épouse Isabelle Martin s'installent aux Pays-Bas, sur la rivière Saint-Jean. Il semblerait que ce Joseph Boucher soit le fils d'un autre Joseph Boucher, de la seigneurie de l'Islet. Ce dernier était marié avec Geneviève Hayot et descendait de Marin Boucher de Mortagne au Perche.

Marin Boucher était venu s'établir en Nouvelle-France en 1634.

Lors de l'arrivée des Loyalistes au Nouveau-Brunswick, Joseph Boucher dû quitter la terre qu'il cultivait et serait déménagé dans la région de Cocagne. Plus tard, il se serait installé à Caraquet, puis à Bouctouche où il est décédé le 19 septembre 1799, âgé de 72 ans.

Pierre Boucher de Boucherville portait les armoiries:

   "D'azur, au chevron d'argent, sommé d'un lis de jardin au naturel accosté de deux glands d'or et en pointe d'un rocher sommé d'une croix latine, le tout aussi d'or."
