The plot was discovered and the plotters were executed.Mistrust of Catholics worsened after the attempted invasion of England by the Spanish Armada eventually repulsed by forces under the command of Sir Francis Drake.

As a result, priests were hunted down and a total of 126 priests were executed during the reign of Elizabeth I. Anthony Babington and his co- conspirators planned to assassinate Elizabeth I and place Mary, Queen of Scots on the throne.Only registers from Northumberland, Durham and Yorkshire were handed in.Registers still remain in the custody of the parish priest who require frequent access to their baptism registers to provide evidence for first communions, confirmations and marriages.The Hardwicke Act of 1753 which came into force in 1754 reformed the marriage system and closed the loophole that allowed legally binding 'irregular' or 'clandestine' marriages to take place.The legislation stipulated that marriage must take place in a licensed Anglican parish church before an Anglican minister and in the bride or bridegroom's own parish in the presence of two witnesses and only after the publication of banns.
