This man was a merchant sailor serving aboard the Edinburgh Trader around 1729, the time of the East India Trading Company's control of Port Royal.


At some unknown point likely in his early life, this man became a merchant sailor serving aboard the East India Trading Company ship, the Edinburgh Trader, under Captain Bellamy. He would serve as a sailor aboard the ship. Around 1729, the Trader left Port Royal. As it sailed out to open sea, a younger sailor found a beautiful dress on the main deck, and informed his crewmates immediately. The bursar and the quartermaster got into an argument over the dress, which they alleged to be evidence of an unrequited female spirit aboard the ship. This crewman was among the crew who watched the fight. Bellamy ordered them to find the stowaway who had put the dress there, and also stated that she was probably naked. However, they searched to no avail, as, unbeknownst to them, the stowaway, Elizabeth Swann was actually among them.

After picking up some new crewmen in Tortuga, the crew of the Trader picked up a man at sea, William Turner Junior, who claimed that he had seen the dress before. It was the Deckhand who first noticed the Flying Dutchman sailing towards the Trader, and rushed to find and inform Bellamy. He told the captain of the ship's appearance and that it wasn't flying any colors. The deckhand looked overboard as the Dutchman was spotted. As the whole ship suddenly shook, the crew assumed that it was just a reef, but Bellamy was soon grabbed by a tentacle of the Kraken. The whole crew panicked, and grabbed spears and pistols to defend themselves. A deckhand grabbed a weapon, then rushed to join the fight. This man was killed during the attack.
