1914
Age 10
http://www.government. pn/Pitcairnshistory.htm. The twentieth century brought an end to European rivalry in the Pacific and naval visits gradually diminished. Fortunately the mission ship, Pitcairn, and her successors maintained contact with Tahiti and merchant men again began to call with increasing frequency until, in 1914, the opening of the Panama Canal placed Pitcairn on the direct run to New Zealand. Many of the new visitors were liners carrying hundreds of passengers anxious to have mementos of the island, halfway rock on the longest regular service in the world. A ship a week, and Pitcairn's isolation was over! The pattern of life changed, inevitably. More and more men developed an urge to see the world, which money and the visiting ships made possible, and communities grew up in Wellington and Auckland from which some moved on to Australia. But even so, the public economy of Pitcairn languished and it was not until postage stamps were issued in 1940 and philatelists came to the rescue, that 'shanty town' became the Adamstown of today.

Name Meaning

English, German, and French: from the personal name Christian, a vernacular form of Latin Christianus ‘follower of Christ’ ( see Christ ). This personal name was introduced into England following the Norman conquest, especially by Breton settlers. It was also used in the same form as a female name.
