  • Thomas Wintour
  • Sir Everard Digby
  • Thomas Percy
  • Francis Tresham
  • Thomas Bates
  • Christopher Wright

But also involved were

  • The Jesuits - Christians, Priests and the Clergy who were pronounced as outlaws and criminals in the reign of Elizabeth I. They claimed that ultimately they were behind the plot.
