    Notes 
    • From #24 showing that in 1528 his son, Anthoine Pichot, did not need his father's consent to marry and was therefore older than 25, we assume he was married the first time around 1498.

    • From #31 we know that he had several heirs less than 25 in 1540. Therefore we conclude he had a second set of children after 1515, with a second wife.

  • Notes 
    • He was probably born in Monbéqui and lived there. Between 1480 and 1535 he was a miller in Monbéqui. He died about 1540.15 From #29 we know he was still alive in 1535 and from #31 he was dead in 1540.

      Anthoine Latrobe was the fourth son of Jehan Latrobe, the miller, by his first wife. He was the great-grandfather of Bertrand Latrobe.

      In 1480, Anthoine Latrobe rented the water mill of Vigueron, shown above as it looks today, from Jeanne de Cardaillac, wife of Anthoine de Lomagne, lord of this area. The present building was built in the XVIIth century, a long time after Anthoine senior's death, but the hydraulic arrangement was certainly located at the same place, Vigueron is two miles downstream from Beaumont-de-Lomagne on the Gimone River about ten miles west of Monbéqui. We know that he was young at that time, but he must have been at least 25 years old, so as to be allowed to sign a contract for renting a water mill. To be in a position to negotiate the renting of a water mill with nobility like Jeanne de Cardaillac and Anthoine de Lomagne, lord of the area, Anthoine Latrobe needed to show good references and experience. So young, he could not succeed if he was the son of a simple farmer. This is why we must conclude he was the son of Jehan Latrobe, miller, about 55 years old at that time.

      The first citations of Anthoine Latrobe have been in #20d (1516) and #22a (1523) where no indication of kinship is given. Nevertheless the first one clearly shows that he was an inhabitant of Monbéqui. Therefore we have considered that this citations concerned the same Anthoine Latrobe as the one cited in #23 (1525), more especially as these two citations were made by a Borelli, notary at Montech, belonging to a notary family which at that time had had steady relationships with the Latrobe family of Monbéqui for more than half a century, as shown by many other citations. We just conclude that, until 1525, this Anthoine was the only one Anthoine Latrobe in power of committing in the area and that consequently his half-brother Anthoine Latrobe Pacharra and his son Anthoine Latrobe Pichot were then less than 25.

      In several archives documents from the early 1530's, Anthoine Latrobe had a nickname "Senior", because he was the oldest among five with this Christian name at that time: his half-brother Anthoine "Pacharra", and his three sons Anthoine "Pichot", Anthoine "Myssole" and Anthoine "Thoniel". Other information pieces available about him show he was a landowner, and he had some interest in wine since, according to #29, he purchased three barrels of wine in 1535. Note that in 1535 Anthoine Latrobe Senior was already 80 at least and we could wonder whether the "Anthoine Latrobe miller" mentioned in #29 would not rather refer to his son Anthoine Latrobe Pichot. We have decided no because Anthoine Latrobe Senior is still clearly said miller in #27 (1533) by the same notary Silvestre of Montech and we must realize that in these old days there was no deadline for retirement. We must just admit that, like his father, Anthoine Latrobe Senior remained active even become very old.

      As already seen about his half-brother, Jehan Latrobe Priest, when he died between 1535 and 1540, Anthoine Senior had, apart from Anthoine Pichot, several other children still minor, among whom Anthoine nicknamed Myssole and Anthoine nicknamed Thoniel. Considering the difference of age with respect to their oldest brother, we have thought that most probably Anthoine Senior had had two sets of children with two successive unknown wives X and X'. Let's recall that dying in childbirth was very frequent in these early days.
