The set of words attested with <au> seem to be mainly of French
etymology. The grapheme <au> would seem to be French in origin although
it was also borrowed into Middle English.Jon

  We write chauns, chauncya, dauns, dauncya, grauntya, chaunjya. 
  Chauns, grauntya are attested. Dauns isn't found in the texts, only
  <donsya>, <donssye>, <donsia>.
