Did You Know?Quebec - Did you know? French Canadians have their own way of speaking French. That’s something that sets them apart from French people: they both speak the same language, but they speak it in completely differently ways. If you ask a Quebecer if he’s more British or French, it’s very likely you’ll get a different answer every time you ask. Quebec has been colonized by both, and has adopted some habits from each of their cultures.

He was born in Montagne (Notre Dame) Perche, France.

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.
