This cork came from bottle used to christen Inglewood on 22 January 1875. An extract from a Taranaki Herald article of the time reads:
"A party of gentlemen consisting for the most part of members of the Provincial Council, rode out yesterday to the Moa block to christen the new township of Inglewood. After having ridden over the ground, a luncheon, which had been conveyed there was partaken of, at which several very complementary speeches were made, and toasts drunk with very much enthusiasm. The party then returned to the town arriving at about 8 o'clock".
