Standish, Jonathan. Jonathan Standish was created by Halliwell Sutcliffe (Nicholas Vyse, Willowdene Will) and appeared in twenty stories in various magazines from 1912 to 1914, beginning with “The Open Road” (The Windsor Magazine, Dec. 1912); the stories were collected in The Open Road (1914).

In 1745, during the Jacobite Rebellion, Jonathan Standish is the master of a house in the north country. His father went surety for a friend who betrayed him, leaving them with almost nothing, and then his father was killed in a riding accident. With nothing to hold him at the house, he decides to take to the open road. He quickly encounters a runaway bride, bandits, and men on both sides of the Rebellion, and is mistaken for the Prince before finding True Love.
