THE GUN­POW­DER PLOT: KEY PLAY­ERS

The Daily Telegraph - Telegraph Magazine - - CHARMED LIFE -

While Guy Fawkes takes the prime spot on our bon­fires this au­tumn, few are aware that it was ac­tu­ally Robert Catesby who mas­ter­minded the plot, and Thomas Win­ter who re­cruited him. Nor that Win­ter, af­ter re­al­is­ing the plot had been dis­cov­ered, would try to get his fel­low con­spir­a­tors – in­clud­ing his brother Robert, a ser­vant Thomas Bates, brothers Christo­pher and John Wright and Thomas Percy – to aban­don it, but to no avail.
