No the plotters were just found out.

It was claimed that the plot was discovered by the sheer stupidity of one of the men involved. His brother was working in the parliament the night the plotters planned to blow it up. So this plotter sent a letter to his brother warning him to stay out of the parliament because something bad was going to happen to it on a certain date. Hence, they were caught.
