This grand mansion was the residence of Governor Weatherby Swann, his daughter Elizabeth Swann and their staff in Port Royal following their crossing from England. Set in the fashionable St. Paul's district, Governor Swann's grand mansion is far from the squalor of Port Royal's docks and slums.


The grand mansion was situated far from the squalor of Port Royal's docks and slums. It came under siege when the Black Pearl launched an attack on Port Royal. Lured by the Gold Medallion that Elizabeth Swann wore around her neck, the pirates storm the governor's mansion to kidnap her. The mansion was devastated by cannonfire, and many of its valuables plundered by the cursed pirates. By the time Weatherby returned to his wrecked home, Elizabeth was already sailing from the port, a captive of Captain Hector Barbossa's crew.

A year after Elizabeth's rescue and the defeat of the cursed crew of the Black Pearl, Lord Cutler Beckett arrived and gained control over Port Royal by order of King George himself. It is unknown what became of the mansion after Weatherby Swann's murder in the hands of Beckett.
