  • Note: This is from a letter to Richard Boucher from M. Paul-Henri Hudon of 20 Jan 1995. (Professo r Hudon is the author of the definitive work of the Boucher family village, "Riviere-Ouelle d e la Bouteillerie, 3siecles de vie 1672-1972") Pierre Boucher II (1639-1707) left the coas t of Beaupre after the death of his mother Perinne Malet (25-Feb-1687). We find him again a t Riviere-Ouelle in 1692. He had married Marie St-Denis on 04-Apr-1663 at Chateau Richer. It 's the decendants of this Pierre Boucher who were particularilyi nfluential in Riviere-Ouelle . In this line can be found merchants, navigators, captains of the militia, school teachers a nd notries, a(national assembly) deputy. Above all the others it is Pierre Boucher III (1673 -1714) who inaugurated the dynasty of leaders (chefs de file); he had married Madeleine Danco sse (1680-1765) in 1697 in Riviere-Ouelle. He was bothan important shareholder (societaire) i n the celebrated beluga whale fishery (peche a marsouins) at the "Pointe de Riviere-Oulle", w hile concurrently owning large blocks of land in the same area. It is even believed that he p ossessed a private flour mill, created due to the negligence of the seigneur in providing th e communal flour grinding mill. This couple had 5 children who were raised by their step-fat her, Jean Baptiste Maisonneuve (1694-1746) who married Madeleine Dancosse, the widow of Pierr e Boucher, on 21-Mar-1716 at Riviere-Ouelle. This M.Maisonneuve must surely have transmitte d to his adopted children his fondness for navigation, for commerce and for adventure. He wa s theowner of a tramp schooner (charroy) used for coastal navigation( cabotage) along the (St -Laurence) river banks. The three sons were Pierre, Francois and Joseph. Pierre Boucher I V (1697-1774) son of Pierre and Madeleine Dancosse,wed Catherine Lizotte (1705-1779), daughte r of Noel Lizotte and Catherine Meneux, on 16-Aug-1726 at Pocatiere. With his brother Josep h he inherited an immense domain of 13 arpents of River-Ouelle frontage. Pierre/Catherine ha d numerous children. Pierre Boucher IV was a large landowner in River-Ouelle, actively involv ed in moneylending as well as buying and selling property. He became the chief bailiff of Riv iere-Ouelle in 1764. He received the signal honor o fbeing interred in the crypt of the churc h on 04-May-1774. Three of his children (Pierre, Ignace and Joseph) occupied various positio ns in the local militia during the troubles of 1775-76.Pierre V had been the major of the mil itia. The other two brothers, Joseph and Ignace, were appointed captain and lieutenant respec tively of the Riviere-Ouelle militia as a reward for their loyalty to theBritish cause durin g the American invasion.
