Vahineatua "Prudence" Mills Adams
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: unknown
Death: Apr. 29, 1831
Adamstown, Pitcairn Islands


"PRUDENCE" - English: reference unknown, likely named by Mills

"VAHINE ALUA" - "woman god"

She arrived on Pitcairn as consort of Mills, to whom she was very attached. She moved into the Adams household when Mills was murdered. It was she that insisted on being the once to seduce Tetahiti in order that he could be taken off guard and murdered. According to Jenny, she 'was killed being pierced in her bowels when she was with child', but that is not likely to be accurate, as she apparently didn't die until long after Jenny left Pitcairn.
