He married Dec. 12, 1619 in Mamers, Maine, France.

He arrived in Canada with his wife and four or five of their children in 1634 or 1635, or both years. In 1634, some 30-odd Percheron immigrants had crossed the ocean led by colonizing seigneur Robert Giffard. Gaspard may have been among the group. On their arrival, whenever they actually arrived, they were accommodated by Champlain in the 'habitation'. They soon after established themselves in the Notre-Dame-des-Anges seigneurie where Gaspard was engaged on the Jesuit farm. In March 21, 1646, Gaspard Boucher acquires a 24-arpents farm at Trois-Rivières.

Gaspard passed away on 20 May 1662 in Trois-Rivières, Quebec, Canada in a house fire that also claimed the life of his wife Nicole.

Did You Know?Quebec - Did you know? In the typical habitant dwelling-house, often reached by a ladder, was a loft or attic running the full area of the house, but so low that one could touch, the rafters everywhere. Here the children, often a dozen or more of them, were stowed away at night on mattresses of straw or feathers laid along the floor. As the windows were securely fastened, even in the coldest weather this attic was warm.
