During his term of office the colony was raided first by the English and by the Dutch. Cyprien Lefebvre was born on 16 December 1643, his father was Antoine Lefebvre, sieur de la Barre, a counselor in parliament and provost of the merchants of Paris. His mother was Madeleine Belin, his eldest brother was Antoine Lefèbvre de La Barre, governor of Cayenne from May 1664 to June 1665. In 1665 the French Minister Jean-Baptiste Colbert commissioned Antoine Lefebvre de La Barre as the king's governor of the American Mainland, he was governor of Cayenne for the king from 1668 to 1670 and governor general of New France from 1682 to 1685. The family dynasty ended with Antoine's son, François Lefebvre de La Barre, governor of Cayenne from 1687 until his death in 1691. Antoine Lefebvre left Cayenne for France in 1665 and obtained the appointment of Cyprien as governor from the newly created Royal West Indies Company.

Cyprien Lefebvre was governor of Cayenne from 1665 to 1668. He replaced the acting governor Antoine de Noël de la Trompe d'Or, who left office on 8 September 1655. On 20 June 1665 Lefebvre ceded a 2,000 by 1,000 feet property in Cayenne to Joseph-Fortuné Pignon, vicomte de Quincy; this became the property of the Jesuits in their base in the colony. In 1666 the English commanded by Captain Peter Wroth visited the colony of Cayenne but did not harm Lefèvre. Cayenne was looted by the British under the command of Rear-Admiral Sir John Harman in August 1667; the English destroyed the town of Cayenne. Lefebvre left on 23 September 1667. From December 1667 the Jesuit father Jean Morellet was the de facto governor. After peace was restored in 1668 Lefebvre's brother Joseph-Antoine de La Barre returned, held office until 1670.

In the spring of 1676 the Dutch captain Jacob Binckes was promoted to vice-admiral and dispatched to the West Indies with a fleet of seven men of war and six other ships, he landed 900 troops near Fort Saint Louis the next day. Lefebvre soon surrendered. Binckes left shortly after for Tobago, leaving a small force to hold Cayenne; the Dutch commander Binkes controlled the colony from 5 May 1676 to 20 December 1676. The Dutch left in December, defeated by the Comte Jean II d'Estrées. In 1679 Lefebvre was replaced as governor by Pierre-Eléonore de La Ville, marquis de Férolles.
