Son of Michel and Francoise Anceaume, established his family (married) on September 27 1660 in Quebec city, Quebec with Marie Haley, daugther of Jean-Baptiste and Mathurine Valet. The preceeding January, Marie-Madeleine Legardeur from Repentigny, wife of Jean-Paul Godefroy had given land to the young man (Joachim Girard) 2 x 15 "arpents" (about 382 by 2865 feet) along Sainte-Genevieve, Quebec city. Thus far Joachim was working for his uncle: Jean Jobin. Joachim and Marie had 7 children.

At the census of 1667, 5 were already born, and 1 girl had died. in 1667 he is the proud owner of 10 "arpent" of land, 2 cows. 2 more children will be born before his wife passes away.
