The manner in which John and William Hall (brothers) arrived in New England is cloudy, but they likely arrived on the Griffin in 1633 with William and Anne Hutchinson, who settled in Boston in a home across from Gov. Winthrop. Gov. Winthrop's journal dated 18 Sep 1634 states, "The Griffin and another ship now arriving with about 200 passengers. Mr. Lathrop and Mr. Sims, two godly ministers coming in the same ship".  The names of the 200 passengers on the Griffin is unknown, but approximately one-quarter of the passenger list has been reconstructed using early documents in which they mention having arrived in Boston with the Hutchinson family.   

It's believed John Hall was labeled an "antinomian", and was exiled to Exeter, NH due to his association with the Hutchinson's.  In Rhode Island Anne preached meetings from her home that each person should follow their own inner light and not depend on ministers for their salvation.   A large number of the passengers on the Griffin in 1633 settled in Rhode Island after being expelled from Boston with the Hutchinson family.
