Zacharie Cloutier was born in 1590 in the parish of Saint-Jean-Baptiste de Mortagne, now attached to the municipality of Mortagne-au-Perche (France). He was the son of Denis Cloutier and his first wife Renee Briere. He married Xainte (or Sainte) Dupont, the widow of Michel Lermusier, in the same parish on July 18, 1616. Xainte was his junior by six years.

Zacharie is, with Jean Guyon, recruited on March 14, 1634 in Mortagne by Robert Giffard to expand the colony of New France who numbered about 100 prior to their arrival.

Zacharie Cloutier received an official grant of land on February 3, 1637 which was known as "La Clouterie", or Cloutiererie in Beauport.

All Cloutier in North America descend from this couple who had six children, all born in Mortagne between 1617 and 1632, but a daughter, Xainte, died when she was six.

The first to found a family is Anne Cloutier, baptised on January 19, 1626, in St-Jean de Mortagne. She married the pionner Robert Drouin on July 12, 1637 at the age of 11, after having signed the first marriage contract in New France on July 27, 1636.

The oldest, Zacharie Cloutier, baptised on August 16, 1617, in Mortagne, married with Madeleine Emard in 1648 in France. The couple came back to the colony with two of her sisters, Barbe Emard who married with the founder of Beaupre, Olivier LeTardif and, Anne Emard with Guillaume Cousture. The couple Cloutier/Emard had eight children. Barbe Cloutier married Charles Belanger in 1663; Rene Cloutier, born in 1651, married Marie-elisabeth Leblanc in 1672; Marie-Madeleine Cloutier with Jean Bouchard, dit Dorval, in 1676. And the fourth, Charles Cloutier, born in 1662, married Anne Thibault in 1685.

The second son, Jean Cloutier, baptised on May 13, 1620, in St-Jean de Mortagne, married in 1648, Marie Martin, born in 1635, daughter of Abraham Martin and Marguerite Langlois. Three children had a descent. A son, Jean Cloutier in 1679, with Louise Belanger; and two daughters, Marie Cloutier, in 1671 with Jean-François Belanger, and Xainte Cloutier with Charles Fortin, in 1681.

A third son of the couple Zacharie and Sainte Dupont, Charles Cloutier, baptised on May 3, 1629, in Mortagne, married in 1659, Louise Morin, born in 1643, daughter of Noel Morin and Helene Desportes. Three children got married: Elisabeth-Ursule Cloutier with Nicolas Gamache in 1676, Jeanne Cloutier with Claude Gravel in 1687 and then Joseph Cloutier in 1733 with Madeleine Lefebvre.

The fifth child, Marie-Louise Cloutier baptised on March 18, 1632, in Mortagne, the widow of François Marguerie who drowned close to Trois-Rivieres with Jean Amyot, had a second marriage in 1648 with Jean Mignault dit Chatillon.

Zacharie Cloutier died in Chateau-Richer on September 17, 1677 at the age of 87. His wife died three years later on July 13, 1680. The couple is buried together in Chateau-Richer.
