"Captain Bellamy, we found this...dress."
Bursar to Bellamy[src]

Bellamy was the captain of the Edinburgh Trader. He spoke with a Scottish accent and was a straight-thinking, earnest man.


Captain Bellamy attempted to quash rumors that his ship was haunted after the crew found Elizabeth Swann's dress aboard, who assumed it belonged to an avenging spirit. In an attempt to persuade the crew otherwise, Bellamy ordered them to find whoever the dress belonged to.

In time, Bellamy expressed his annoyance at the East India Trading Company and was eventually coaxed by his crew to stop in Tortuga, where the crew made a substantial amount of profit off the books. On the way back from Tortuga, Bellamy picked up William Turner adrift at sea, an action that ultimately led to the Kraken attacking the ship. Bellamy was its first victim, being plucked from the deck by a tentacle and dragged underwater to his death. The Edinburgh Trader would soon share its late captain's watery fate.

Bellamy's death was not without a sense of dark humor. He was swiftly and silently seized by a tentacle while his crewmen's backs were turned. Unaware that their captain was no longer on board, they expressed confusion as to why the Deckhand, who solely witnessed it, was trembling in fear. Their answer came flying out of the ocean: Captain Bellamy in the grasp of a massive tentacle, before being dragged back underwater and presumably eaten by the Kraken.

Behind the scenes

  • Bellamy was portrayed by Alex Norton in Dead Man's Chest.
  • Bellamy may have been named for a real-life, eighteenth century pirate known as "Black Sam" Bellamy. However, other than sharing the same name, there is little similarity between them.
