Was Jean-Baptiste (Lootman) Laudeman really a New Netherland settler.

Tanguay is to blame for using Jean-Baptiste as a given when he found his adult baptism. Please see my comment at Lootman-1.

The tag should not call him Jean Baptiste.

Although technically I wouldn't say a native is a settler but I can accept him having the tag just not as Jean Baptiste.

Sorry, when I completed the merge, I selected the later-sourced name of the names that appeared on the profiles as his Preferred Name.

If you don't think he ever actually used the name Jean-Baptiste that appeared on his second baptism, move that name to "Other Nicknames" and change the Preferred Name to the name you believe he was using near the end of his life -- maybe Hillebrant, Hillebrand, Herbrand, or Hilbrant.

As for the term "Settler," that term (which dates from the early days of the New Netherland Project) is applied to everyone who was living in New Netherland before 1674, whether an immigrant, indigenous Native American, or a child of an immigrant family.

For what it's worth, for the period up to 1800, PRDH database shows the following tabulation of variants to the standard name landreman:

landremann 75
landreman 74
andreman 26
landremane 16
landremanne 13
laudeman 10
25 other variants 50

Total             264 

Interestingly, PRDH Pioneer 546 shows a Jean Baptiste Landreman Barrois, immigrant, b. ~1691 Esopus, Nouvelle-Angleterre (co. Ulster, New-York, Etats-Unis), 1st married 1717 MontrĂ©al (Notre-Dame) with Marie Madeleine Cardinal, died outside of Canada

Thank you, Claude. That man you found is one of this man's sons. He apparently was born in Kingston, New York. He has at least one profile here in Wikitree.
Thanks Ellen. I followed your advice. Changed preferred name from Jean Baptiste to Hilbrant to make Hilbrant Lootman the New Netherland Settler.

Hilbrant Lootman was named on a July 1711 list of Ulster County Militia to march on the Canadians. I guess he didn't feel welcome at LaPrarie or with his wife and 3 sons.
