I wouldn’t go as far as saying that he is the original Norrington, but considering the preference of the POTC scriptwriters for pictures over text… 😉

Ladies and gentlemen, please give a rattling applause to

“(…) Capt. Hugh “Seafoam” McDuck was born around 1710. He grew wealthy sailing his “Golden Goose” on the trade route to the West Indies! But in 1753 one Swindle McSue tricked him into a contract to deliver some horse radish to Jamaica – then scuttled the “Goose”! Seafoam forfeited the McDuck home and belongings to McSue, and escaped with only the heirloom watch in his pocket, and the golden dentures in his mouth!

According to Don Rosa, “Seafoam” died in 1776, perhaps in the Anglo-American war.(…)”

Seafoam

So, you get a duck with cravat and pigtail. Or rather, ducktail! 😀
