Bye Plot

Bye Plot

The Bye Plot was a conspiracy by a Catholic priest, William Watson, to kidnap King James I of England and force him to repeal anti-Catholic legislation. The plot was revealed by English Jesuits in 1603, led by Father Henry Garnet, who informed the government because they were afraid of retribution against Catholics if the plan failed, and because of Jesuit suspicion regarding the political motivations of secular priests.

Catholic priests William Watson and William Clark were tried and executed along with George Brooke for their parts in the scheme. Early in 1604, as a result of the plot, King James ordered all Catholic clergy to leave England.
