I'm sure you're right - and the evidence is certainly overwhelming! Thank you.
I still wonder if the original missionaries might not perhaps have been Spanish, as missionaries are by nature conservative and not given to innovation ... but my knowledge of Pacific Ocean history is for practical purposes zero, and as the Fijians are now English-speaking rugby players, something must have happened to change the colonial regimes around.
