    He came to Boston in 1634 on the Griffin along with the Rev. John Lothropp and the famous Hutchinson family. According to John Denison Champlin ["The Tragedy of Anne Hutchinson," Journal of American History 5:348, 1911], both Lothropp and Symmes delivered many sermons to pass the time on the voyage, and Anne Marbury Hutchinson's "nimble and comprehensive wit" in interrogating both divines was so aggravating to Symmes that he attempted, on arrival at Boston, to immediately exclude her from admission to the church.
