The Marquis de Saint-Nectaire was commissioned in the Senneterre Dragoons, advancing to the rank of Brigadier in 1704 and Marechal de camp later the same year. He was promoted Lieutenant-General of the French Army in 1718, before being posted to London by King Louis XV, where he served as Ambassador to Great Britain until 1720; he was appointed Chevalier du Saint-Esprit in 1724.

His father, Jean-Charles de Saint-Nectaire (1608-1696), styled comte de Brinon (who was the third son of Jacques de Saint-Nectaire, baron de La Groliere), married in 1654 Marguerite (died 1701), sole heiress of Timoleon de Boves, baron de Contenant; of their five children, two survived childhood: Henri, who inherited his father's ancestral titles and his sister Madeleine, who married Pierre-Gilbert Colbert, marquis de Villacerf.
