Julien arrived in Quebec in 1650, at the age of 29 (his sister Marie came with him). He married Genevieve Gamache on 11 November 1652, in Notre-Dame, Quebec*. He had worked as a butcher in his father's shop in France and was promised a job with his brother-in-law, as part of his wife's dowry. Julien and Genevieve had twelve children together:

1) Barbe (1654-1737) md (a) Pierre Gagnon and (b) Pierre Lessard
2) Charles (1656-1735) Xainte Cloutier
3) Eustache (1658-1736) md Louise Cloutier
4) Jacques (1660-1730) md Catherine Biville
5) Genevieve (1662-1703) md Noel Gagnon
6) Joseph (1664-) md Agnes Cloutier
7) Marie-Anne (1666-1702) md (a) Etienne Mirambeau and (b) Jean Picard
8) Julien (1667-1687) unmarried
9) Pierre (1669-1756) md Gertrude Hudon
10) Louis (1671-1687) unmarried
11) Jean (1674-) unmarried
12) Marguerite (1677-1703) md Pierre-Francois Fromage

*"Our French-Canadian Ancestors" by Thomas J. Laforest , page 65 says that the marriage took place at the home of Louis Gagne, at Cape Tourmente, which was at that time within the limits of Sainte Anne parish.

Note:
His baptism record simply has his name as Julien Fortin (named after his father), same with his immigration record, and marriage record. His burial record has his burial date, followed by (Mr) de belle Fontenne. His record on the Tanguay Collection has him listed as Julien Fortin dit Bellefontaine.
