Note: Jean Cloutier from http://www.naples.net/~clutchey/jean.htm It is interesting to note the enormous historical significance of one of our 'ancestral cousins". Jean Cloutier the second son of Zacharie Cloutier and one of the 'builders' of Château Richer. Jean married Marie the daughter of Abraham Martin. Martin was a remarkable man in his own right. Not only was he a contemporary of Zacharie Cloutier I the father of Jean, he was also known as L'Ecossais "the Scotchman" who was a river boat pilot on the St. Lawrence. In the archives of "The Dames Ursulines", are the titles of two farms that he owned. The historical status of the two farms did not really take place until long after his death. On September 12th 1759, a young British General scaled the ramparts of Québec City in an attempt to capture the city from the French. At dawn his troops lined up on the fields and awaited the attack of the french general, Moncalm. The ensuing battle in which both generals died, was fought on the lands that Abraham Martin once owned. To this day the battle won by the English is known as the battle of THE PLAINS OF ABRAHAM Dictionnaire Genealogique Des Familles Canadiennes; ; L'Abbe Cyprien Tanguay, Province of Quebec 1921; Volume 1 Page 132.
