He was the Viscount of Trécesson and Knight of the Royal and Military Order of Saint-Louis.

He was promoted to lieutenant on March 25, 1733; captain on April 28, 1741; and then captain of a grenadiers company on February 25, 1756. He had received the Cross of Saint-Louis on November 10, 1749. On October 10th of the same year, he was given the command of the 3rd Battalion of the Regiment of Berry. In October 1758, he obtained the rank of lieutenant-colonel. Having already been wounded once in the head during the War for the Succession in Austria, he was received gun shout wounds on April 28, 1760 while he was pursuing the English troops in route; he was located near to the walls of Québec trying to take refuge inside the walls of the city. He died from these wounds on May 9, 1760. He is buried in the cemetery of the General Hospital of Quebec, which a part was called "Cemetery of the Heroes"; it became in 2001 the Memorial of the Seven Years War. (bio by: Guy Gagnon)
