The Great Migration



Many English families left England, to avoid the chaos of their homeland and migrated to the many British colonies abroad. Although the conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and some travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute, once in the colonies, many of the families prospered and made valuable contributions to the cultures of what would become the United States and Canada. Research into the origins of individual families in North America has revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Clouthier or a variant listed above: Zacharie Cloutier II settled in Quebec in about 1630 and may have been the first immigrant of the name from Normandy, his son Rene married Barbe Aymard in 1672.
