105 After Jean's death his legatee and brother, Pierre Latrobe, according to the will turned over furniture to his widow, Antoinette Darenes on 12 November 1612. Her son, Yzac Latrobe, farmer, was present In spite of his Christian name being the most important one in reference to the family tradition, Jean Latrobe was undoubtedly the youngest son of Jehan Latrobe and Gailharde Benoist, because in the two archive pieces (#108 dated 1601 - Jean-Pierre Benoist cited here should most probably be a first cousin - and #141 dated 1604) where he is named together with his brother, Pierre, he is coming as second. From the information available today, we have concluded that his father died when he was a very small boy, and that together with his mother and his brother, Pierre, he lived at his uncle Jehan Latrobe's house. Uncle Jehan Latrobe was the royal notary who introduced the new ideas of Protestantism into the family.

Consequently Jean was educated within the Protestant Religion. Jean spent his whole life in Monbéqui as a farmer, a traditional activity of many generations of his ancestors.

On 31 Oct 1612, Jean signed a will where he named his brother, Pierre, as his universal legatee (see #180). We now know the reason for that was that Jean had had no children. In his will, Jean declared he wanted to die as a Catholic and be buried in his ancestors' grave in Monbéqui. Therefore, apparently when death came nearer he changed his Religion from the one of his youth. To understand his change of religion, we have to resituate it within the general historical context and his own story.

By the end of Oct 1612, it is two and half years after Henri IV was assassinated by Ravaillac. As his son, Louis XIII, was then only 11 years old and therefore still too young, the royal power went into the hands of his widow, Marie de Medici, a strong Catholic, acting as regent of the kingdom. Fourteen years after the Edict of Nantes of 1598, the Henri IV's policy of tolerance was more or less forgotten, and the Catholic forces had taken advantage of the King's assassination to restart persecuting the Huguenots, a movement which finally led Louis XIII to order his army to besiege Montauban in 1621.

Of course the Montauban area, one of the few fortresses held by the Huguenots according to the Edict of Nantes, was deeply affected by this general tendency. Presumably Jean was impressed by the movement and ideas of the Counter-Reformation. He might have feared to be punished by God because of his Protestant faith, which was not even the one of his father, but that of his uncle. With the psychology of that time his change is quite understandable.
