The worst the Archdeaconry Court could do was excommunicate you I

carried on having children and having them christened...
I would think he'd view it quite seriously and that his standing with
those around him in any capacity would take a serious knock.
However, since he continued to have his children christened, his
offence was either not considered serious enough for such drastic
action or he was found not guilty of the charge.
You'd really need to find a record, if at all possible of the actual
proceedings. You've got the summons but not the proceedings.
Genealogy: is it a thing of the past??
