Robert Catesby (1573 ? November 18, 1605), born in Lapworth, Warwickshire, or possibly in Northamptonshire, to a strongly Roman Catholic family, was the leader of a group of Roman Catholic conspirators (the most notable of whom was Guy Fawkes) who endeavoured to blow up the Houses of Parliament in England in 1605. However, the Gunpowder Plot was uncovered and the barrels of gunpowder defused before any damage was done.
