    Notes:

    He was a master carpenter and a builder, but what he is best known for is the oceanic immensity of his descent, in Quebec and around the world. According to Wikipedia, "By 1800, Cloutier had 10,850 French-Canadian descendants, the most of any Quebec colonist, according to marriage records studied by the Historical Demography Research Program of the Université de Montréal." Denis Beauregard's Genealogy of the French in North America estimates the modern Quebec descendants of Zacharie and Xainte Cloutier to number between 5,670,000 and 6,090,000. The entire population of Quebec in 2019 is just under 8,500,000.

    Cloutier descendants are said to include Madonna, Celine Dion, the Dionne quintuplets, Robert Goulet, Angelina Jolie, Jack Kerouac, Avril Levigne, Alanis Morisette, Camilla Duchess of Cornwall, and Prime Ministers Louis St-Laurent and Pierre Elliott Trudeau. Specific descents for some of these people are given here (in French, but the trees are easy to follow). Other descents, such as the Trudeau family's, can be teased out of this site by using its relationship search function.

    According to Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter, descendants of Zacharie Cloutier carry a higher-than-average risk of developing Oculopharyngeal Muscular Dystrophy.

    Other Events:

    • Baptised: Aft 7 Jul 1620

    Notes:

    She was a godchild of Hélène Boullé, the wife of Samuel Champlain. In his will, Champlain left her 300 livres, equivalent to about $15,000 in modern money.

    From the Dictionary of Canadian Biography:

    DESPORTES, HÉLÈNE (Hébert; Morin), said to be the first white child born in New France, daughter of Pierre Desportes and Françoise Langlois; m. Guillaume Hébert in October 1634; m. secondly Noël Morin 9 Jan. 1640 at Quebec; d. 24 June 1675.

    The date of Hélène's birth has not been definitely fixed. Dionne says that she came to Quebec with her parents in 1613, Sulte that she was born in Quebec about 1622. Statistics from other sources indicate that she was 14 years old in 1634, 38 in 1659, 46 in 1666, and 48 in 1667. Anne Hébert, according to Champlain, had died in childbirth prior to 1620; but since there is no further mention of her child, it was presumably still-born. Eustache Martin was born in October 1621. If, however, we assume Hélène's birthdate to be 1620, which seems most probable, her claim is established as being the first white child born alive in the St. Lawrence region. (Sulte, to be sure, claims for Guillemette Hébert the honour of being the first-born Canadienne, on the assumption that Louis Hébert had his wife with him in Acadia in 1606, but Lescarbot's evidence refutes this.)
