Abstract Malachi Martin was tried and executed by hanging on 24 December 1862 in Adelaide Jail for the murder of a servant, Jane MacManamin. This was one of a number of killings alleged to have been committed by the same man. The Salt Creek murders have enjoyed sporadic interest over the years in local histories, newspaper features and reminiscences. In the limited available research, they have contributed little to an understanding of the early settlement of South Australia.
