I refer to the family several times. Here are the basics:

"According to Jetté: Jean-Baptiste LOTMAN dit Albrin (born Herbrand) (...) born 1662 Iope, Nouvelle-Hollande, baptized 8 November 1699 Montréal (after the family left New Holland, then New York), m about 1689 in Nouvelle-Hollande Anne LEBER, WIDOW of Antoine Barrois.

Two of their children, the brothers François and Jean-Baptiste LOTMAN dit Barrois both married in 1717 in Montréal: François Lotman dit Barrois m 31-05-1717 Montréal (Ct 13 Le Pailleur) Sauvage, Marie-Anne (Jacques & Marie-Catherine Jean) 5 children, 4 born in Detroit, 1722, 26, 27,30; Jean-Baptiste LOTMAN dit Barrois m 30-04-1717 Montréal (Ct 30 Lepailleur, which the archives says is missing) Cardinal, Marie-Madeleine (Jacques & Louise Arrivée) 7 children; 2 born in Detroit, 1722, 1724. [Photocopies]

The brothers' mother's _first_ husband: Antoine BARROIS, a surgeon (Jean, master surgeon & Marie Tournel) from St-Nicolas-du-Chateau, v., ar. and archev. Bourges, Berry (Cher) m. Anne LEBER (Francois & Francoise Lefrancois) 12 January 1672 Montreal

The Antoine Barrois / Anne Leber family moved to Albany, New York, formerly known as New Holland, about 1683. After her first husband's death, Anne remarried, still in New York, in 1689, Hillebrand Lootman, and the family returned to French Canada in 1699, where most of the up-to-then not formally baptized in the Catholic Church children were given the formal rites, as was Lootman/Lotman. [phocopies of the church records.]

Anne Leber's sons by Lootman used the dit name Barrois, their mother's first husband's name, and sometimes used it alone, as well as the name Lotman / Lootman, etc.

See The American Genealogist of January 1991, Vol. 66, No. 1, pp. 3-9, and April 1991, Vol. 66, No. 2, pp. 88-175, for a good article by James L. Hansen, "The Lootman/Barrois Families of Canada, New York, and Points West". Hansen lists eight children for Antoine and Anne, and three for Hillebrand and Anne. He also corrects several earlier citations for the family in the older indexes. See also PRDH for the Lootman and Barrois families."
