French surnames were subject to numerous spelling alterations depending on the region and time it was used.

For example, Old French was infused with Germanic words and sounds when barbarian tribes invaded and settled in France after the fall of the Roman Empire. Middle French also borrowed heavily from the Italian language during the Renaissance. As a result of these linguistic and cultural influences, the name Cloutiere is distinguished by a number of regional variations. The many spelling variations of the name include Cloutiere, Cloutier, le Cloutier, Clouterie, Cloutour, Cloutrier, Clouteau, Clouter, Clouté, Clutier, Clutiere and many more.

The Great Migration



By 1643 there were only about 300 people in Quebec. Since immigration was slow, early marriage was desperately encouraged amongst the immigrants. The fur trade attracted migrants, both noble and commoner. 15,000 explorers left Montreal in the late 17th and 18th centuries. By 1675, there were 7000 French in Quebec. By the same year the Acadian presence in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island had reached 500. In 1755, 10,000 French Acadians refused to take an oath of allegiance to England and were deported to Louisiana. The French founded Lower Canada, thus becoming one of the two great founding nations of Canada. The distinguished family name Cloutiere has made significant contributions to the culture, arts, sciences and religion of France and New France. Amongst the settlers in North America with this distinguished name Cloutiere were Zacharia Clouter arrived in Barbados in 1663 and may have been from the north, perhaps the maritimes or Quebec; J.B. Cloutier arrived in New Orleans, Louisiana in 1823 and was listed on the New Orleans ship lists..
