Note: dit Poitevin refers to his ancient and ancestral Barbeau family line location of Poitou France. It might also include a Poitevin family surname from the same region inner connected. 
Note: The French identifier dit Poitevin is identifying something about the person or person's family. It is not a (royal or noble) conveyance such as de or du. It is not an alias, nickname or last name which are incorrect English translations!
French "dit" or "dite" names were identifiers used by French families, that describe or distinguish the person based on a variety of possible definitions including French surname linage, maiden name genealogy, geography, guilds, master craftsmanship, military loyalties, seigneur relationships, military status ...etc etc etc
The Old World French never referred to dits as "last names", "nick names" or "aliases."
Many French , Nouvelle France and Louisanne families carried their dit identification from their origins in France, Netherlands and Britain when they migrated to North America.
Eventually most dit and dite identifiers use were dropped as families became nationalized in North America and discontinued in France after the French Revolution.Baraboo-1 16:28, 16 February 2018 (EST)
