Hi Terry
Formal adoption (as we know it today) didn't start in NZ until the 1880's. The person you're looking for may have been informally adopted or fostered, had their last name (and soometimes forenames) altered to match a stepfather's but would have often used their birth surname when married.

Check out the NZ BDM website for some possibilities

Good luck
Elli
