Captain Purdy from the 1685 Monmouth Rebellion

My great-grandmother (Purdy-994) wrote that among her ancestors there was a Captain Purdy that fought in the unsuccessful Monmouth Rebellion in 1685.  He had his ears cut off and was banished to France where he married and later emigrated with his 3 sons to U.S.  I cannot find this person among the WikiTree Purdy records and the ancestor in our personal tree recorded be his son is Jonathan Purdy whose birth, death and location match that of Purdy-418. The father listed is not the Captain Purdy in my great-grandmother's version.  The name Monmouth has been carried in my family line ever since as a first or middle name. I would love any help on this discrepancy.
