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 cursed crew.
It's unknown what happened to the mansion following Weatherby Swann's death at the hands of Beckett and Ian Mercer, but as Elizabeth opted to raise her son Henry Turner at a lighthouse, it's likely that it was abandoned or bought by some other person.
