[1840s] · Glasgow [Scotland]
The Duke of Gordon's three daughters leave Castle Gordon for Aberdeen. Lady Jean runs off with Captain Ogilvie, who is stripped of his rank as a punishment. After bearing him three children, Lady Jean grows weary of living in poverty and returns to her father's castle; however, all ends well: Ogilvie discovers that all his brother's children have died; he is now "heir of Northumberland"; and Lady Jean becomes Countess of Northumberland.
