Mathieu dit La Citardy spelled his surname Brasseur and sometimes Brasseux and LeBrasseur, so he probably was not a kinsman of Pierre Brassaud/ Brassaux, who had come to the colony by c1691. Mathieu married Jeanne, teenage daughter of André Célestin dit Bellemère and Perrine Basile, at Port-Royal in c1702; Mathieu, interestingly, was 39 years older than his wife. They settled at Minas, where Jeanne gave Mathieu 11 children, including five sons who created families of their own.
