Segur, Raymond Joseph Paul
SEGUR, RAYMOND JOSEPH PAUL, comte de Segur d'Aguesseau (1803-1889), third son of Octave de Segur, took his mother's family name in addition to his own. He studied law at Aix and Paris. As procureur general of Amiens he gave in March 1830 a decision on the question of the electoral lists which pleased the liberal party, but late in the year, as substitute in the royal court of Paris, he ordered the suppression of certain liberal journals, and in other civil appointments was accused of reactionary administration. He gave his adhesion to Prince Louis Napoleon, and became a member of the consultative commission in 1851, and of the senate in 1852. After the fall of the empire he retired into private life.
Louis GASTON ADRIEN DE SEGUR (1820-1881), son of Eugene de Segur and Sophie Rostopchine, became a prelate of the papal court, and canon-bishop of Saint-Denis. He was a champion of the ultra-montane party and wrote a number of Catholic works, collected in ten volumes (Paris, 1876-1877). His life was written by his brother Anatole, who edited two collections of his letters in 1882 and 1899.
