Besides making a significant contribution to the founding and fashioning of the new settlement of South Australia, the South Australian Company continued to play and important part in the commercial affairs of Adelaide and its surrounding regions for more than a century.

Most of the papers were deposited in the State Library of South Australia's Archival collections in 1937-1938 and came from both the London and Adelaide Offices of the Company. The collection contains some 150 maps of Company lands in South Australia.
