Bye plot, 1603. James VI and I, plagued by plots in Scotland, was confronted by fresh ones as soon as he arrived in his new kingdom. The Bye plot was a hare-brained scheme, hatched by William Watson, a catholic priest, to seize the king at Greenwich and force him to grant a general toleration. It fizzled out, but the subsequent investigations led to the Main plot, which brought down Lord Cobham, Cecil's brother-in-law, and Ralegh.
