Pope to Painter Surname change

Surnames: Painter, Pope
I recently heard a story that my family was forced to flee Scotland from the British. They were supposedly running from something to do with Prince Charlie. I researched this and found that Charlie (Young Pretender) tried to invade England during the Jacobitism movement and that once he was defeated his supporters were punished/killed. My current surname is Painter, and I am from Louisiana. I know that my great great great grand father, James Painter (born abt. 1820), may have been from Virginia but I heard that the Painters came from Texas. Possibly Landing in Virginia and migrating to Texas then on to Louisiana. Please help if you have anything. thanks. Was told that Pope changed to Painter b/c of this conflict.
