Not sure if this is the same family but it would seem to suggest the end of the Vieuxpont's in France.

René-François de La Noüe, second son of Jacques and of Catherine de Vieuxpont, born in 1684, was Captain of Dragons in the Queen's Regiment and, in 1728, at the death of his first cousin, the Marquis of Vieuxpont, last of this illustrious House, he joined to his name and arms, those of Vieuxpont. In 1713, he entered into an alliance with Marie-Madeleine de Fiennes-le-Carlier, Lady of Picardy:

Gabriel-François, Count of La Noüe-Vieuxpont, born in 1714 and deceased in 1779.  He was an infantry Colonel and Knight of Saint-Louis, Plenipotentiary Minister, General-Major and Chamberlain of the Elector of Cologne. He never married;

Guillaume-Alexandre, Vicar-General of Meaux and Supreme Abbot of St-Séverin;

Jean-Marie, Knight of Saint-Louis and Colonel of a Regiment, without posterity;

Le Chevalier de La Noüe, Captain in the Cavalry Regiment of Marcieu, killed in the battle of Minden in 1759;

Stanislas-Louis, Lieutenant-Colonel in the Infantry, Commandant of the Volunteers of the Army of the Marshal de Broglie.  He was the author of the Nouvelles Constitutions Militaires, and was killed in 1760, in a combat in Westphalia.
