At some point before Jack Sparrow arrived at Hangman's Bay, Pierre Kelly brought together a gang of loyal pirates. In 1751, Carina Smyth, Henry Turner, and Jack Sparrow arrived at the bay, however to their dismay, they managed to be fooled into the gang's traps. These men brought them to their captain, Pierre Kelly, and Pierre decided to have Sparrow marry Beatrice, Pierre's recently-widowed sister. Later, soon after other pirates brought the wedding to an abrupt end, Pierre Kelly was shot by Captain Barbossa in the leg, bringing him to the ground. His gang subsequently scrambled to haul him away before they left. The gang's further fate remains unknown.
Behind the scenes
- In Jeff Nathanson's 2013 early draft of the Dead Men Tell No Tales script Kelly's gang was based in Port Royal, not in Hangman's Bay. When Jack Sparrow escaped from Port Royal and stole the Dying Gull from Kelly for the second time, Kelly's crew followed him aboard their own ship, the shallop Essex. Kelly's crew eventually caught up with Sparrow and attacked the Gull, but Sparrow's crew managed to repel the attackers.
