John Scarfield and a British officer to the crew[src]

The crew of the Essex was a British Royal Navy crew that served on the warship Essex in 1751.


The crew of the Essex consisted of many Marines, sailors, and officers of the British Royal Navy, similar to other ships in the Navy in 1751. They were under the command of Lieutenant John Scarfield, a British naval officer driven mad by his lust for revenge on Carina Smyth and Jack Sparrow, and determination for the British Empire to hold the command of the sea. Despite their skillful officers and powerful ship, the entire crew was killed due to Armando Salazar using the Silent Mary to mangle the Essex in two, igniting the powder magazine and sending the ship ablaze, killing everyone, including Scarfield, on board.[1]
