Did You Know? What is a 'dit/dite' name?  When the first settlers came to Canada from France it was a custom to add a 'dit' nickname to the surname. The English translation of 'dit' is 'said'. The Colonists of Nouvelle France added 'dit' names as distinguishers. A settler might have wanted to differentiate their family from their siblings by taking a 'dit' name that described the locale to which they had relocated. The acquiring of a 'dit' name might also be the result of a casual adoption, whereby the person wanted to honor the family who had raised them. Another reason was also to distinguish themselves by taking as a 'dit' name the town or village in France from which they originated. This custom ended around 1900 when people began using only one name, either the 'dit' nickname or their original surname.

Pierre Boucher was the son of Gaspard Boucher and Nicole Lemaire

Pierre Boucher believed in the possibility of creating a new people by the union of French men and Indian women. He gave the example himself by marrying, in 1649, a Huron girl, a pupil of the Ursulines of Quebec, Marie Ouebadinskoue, otherwise called Marie-Madeleine Chrestienne. The young woman died in December of the same year while giving birth to a child, who did not live. Boucher next married, in 1652, a fellow-countrywoman, Jeanne Crevier, who was the daughter of Christophe Crevier, the pioneer from Rouen, and who had come from France with her parents. Fifteen children were born of the second marriage.
