Claude de Razilly fought in the Siege of Saint-Martin-de-Ré (1627) in 1627 and the Siege of La Rochelle. In 1627, he successfully relieved the siege of the Royal forces in the fortress of Saint-Martin-de-Ré by sailing through an important English naval blockade.

In 1632, he was given by Richelieu in association with his brother Isaac de Razilly a mission to recover Acadia from the English following the Treaty of Saint-Germain. He was Governor of Acadia when Port Royal was recovered in 1634.[1][2]

After his death three years later, Claude de Razilly was succeeded as Acadian Governor by two contenders, d'Aulnay et de la Tour.[3]
