On his petition to the Governor in December 1862 Martin signed his name “Malaky Martin” (Malachy Martin’s petition to the Governor & Executive Council of South Australia, GRG 24/6/1862/1215). In oral tradition the name is pronounced in a way that indicates it should be spelt “Malachy” rather than the Biblical “Malachi”. John Bowyer Bull, who had met Malachy, mentions him in his memoirs, and although he spells the name several ways, they are all closer to “Malachy” than to “Malachi” (J.B.
