In recognition of their valiant conduct at war, many members of this noble family received lands and titles and were prominent citizens. This family had many members who were admitted to the Order of the Knights of Malta and to the Knights of Saint Cyr in 1706, 1751, 1768, and on August 7, 1773, Jeanne from the Redon branch of the family was admitted. Many distinctive members of the Tessieres family participated in the Assembly of Notables in 1789.

After settling in the Canadian province of Quebec he married Marie Archambault, daughter of Jacques and Françoise, on 28th September 1648. They remained together in Quebec until Urbain's death at Montreal on 21st March 1689. [1]
