You might be interested in what Prof James Johnston d.1981 wrote about the Scottish origins of the Auchmoody line.
"James was the son of John the Master of the Wardrobe ..... paid his first visit to France in 1683 to look after his uncle Alexander Young, Bishop of Ross. ..... Captain James (Jacques) appears in the French records in a legal marriage to Jeanne Coughlan, whose child was buried at St Germains in 1693. Three years later there is the record of a daughter Mary Magdalene, born to a Jeanne D'Arcy. Captain James died in exile in 1699 leaving a legitimate son James who was the ancestor of the branch of the family now in the United States under the name Auchmoody - and whatever their religious affiliations may have been in Scotland or in France they settled at New Pfalz in the province of New York and became Lutherans."
