"As the friendship between the 29-year-old Robert and the Cloutier family grew stronger, he sought the hand in marriage of the 10-year-old daughter of his employer. Anne Cloutier was born in Perche in January of 1626, the daughter of Zacharie and Xainte Dupont... The marriage was to take place as soon as possible, however, the newlyweds were to continue to live in the Cloutier home for a period of three years... Their marriage was celebrated on 12 July 1637, in the church of Notre-Dame de Quebec, but their first child, Agnes, did not come into the world until January of 1641, after those three years of parental surveillance."

"A sad event occured in 1648! Anne Cloutier died at la Chandeleur and was buried at Quebec on 4 February... Robert left the area. He gave his in-laws temporary custody of his two orphan daughters, Genevieve and Jeanne..."

"Anne, 19 January 1626, married the brickmaker Robert Drouin in 1637. They had six children, all but two died in infancy. Anne herself died on 4 February 1648. Robert remarried in 1649 to the widow Marie Chapelier who was not accepted by the Cloutiers and, as a result, Zacharie and Xainte raised their granddaughters, Genevieve and Jeanne Drouin, as their own."

Biography
'Anne was born on January 19, 1626, in St. Jean De Mortagne, Perche France. She was just eight years old when they arrived in Quebec and her father was always stirred up about something; constantly feuding with Robert Giffard. Despite that, the family did quite well.
When she was just ten, her father promised her in marriage to Robert Drouin, an employee of Robert Giffard, and the contract, signed on July 27, 1636; in the home of family friend Jean Guyon; went down on record as the first contract of it's kind in Quebec. Drouin was 28, a brick layer from the the town of Pin-la-Garenne in Normandy, who had arrived that year.'
