ANATOLE HENRI PHILIPPE DE SEGUR (1823-1902), Gaston's brother, became councillor of state in 1872, serving until 1879.

His son, PIERRE MARIE MAURICE HENRI, marquis de Segur (b. 1853), wrote a life (1845) of the marshal de Segur, which was crowned by the French Academy. His book on Madame Geoffrin, Le Royaume de la rue Saint-Honore (1897), also received a prize.
