The Louterel family held the Chateau de Saint-Aubin-sur-Risle in Normandie, France from the beginning of the 16th century until the French Revolution (1789-1799).
In 1514 we find Christopher Louterel as the "temporal lord of Saint- Aubin-sur-Risle". He was followed by his son, Adrien Louterel, who married Marie d' Argences. They had a son Jean Louterel II who married Marguerite des Châteaux. Their son, Nicolas Louterel, married Esther d' Erneville de Launai. Their son Robert Louterel became Squire and lord of St Aubin. His son, Nicolas Louterel II was followed by Louis who was succeded by Charles Louterel as lord of the parish.
Pierre Louterel, a relative of the lord of St. Aubin, was the priest in the adjacent church in 1546.

THE RIGHT TO A FAIR TRIAL AND TO DUE PROCESS OF LAW
". . .example of violations of the laws that guarantee due process. . .
A more recent example is that of Ing. José Guillermo Luttrell, a human rights activist and member of the Support Committee for the international observers for the elections that were held on May 7, 1989. Ever since he became involved in human rights activities, Mr. Luttrell has been persecuted by the regime of General Noriega and has been the target of a number of death threats. On May 24, Mr. Luttrell was arbitrarily detained as he was participating in a peaceful demonstration outside the Hotel Marriott in Panama City, in support of the OAS mission charged with promoting a dialogue to assure, within democratic parameters, and as soon as possible a transfer of power with full respect for the sovereign will of the Panamanian people. At the time of his arrest, he was beaten and immediately taken to the Model Prison where he was held incommunicado for seven days; he was later taken to the preventive detention section, along with a large number of other detainees The night court judge, Iván de Roux, who had the case of Mr. Luttrell, sentenced him to 365 days imprisonment, with the possibility of release on bail. However the officials at the Model Prison (officers of the Panamanian Defense Forces) systematically refused to obey the judge's orders and held Mr. Luttrell and of her detainees illegally imprisoned, notwithstanding a court order to the contrary, until July 12, 1989, when they were released by Ministerial Decision."

I have received emails from our "cousins" in Germany who inform me that they spell their name "Lattrell" which is the "phonetic spelling of the pronunciation in German". However, I have no information on the history of the Lattrells in Germany. I would appreciate hearing from anyone who would share this information.
