I am trying to find any information on the adoption of Catherine Lowater Watkin/Watkins in New Zealand between 1865-1876. Unfortunately she died in 1876. If anyone has any information I would greatly appreciate it. Her parents were Catherine Watkin/Watkins (nee Lowater) and James Entwistle Watkin/Watkins. From what I can work out her mother may have died during child birth. Or if anyone knows if adoption records are available for the time.
