His Family

Little is known about the earliest days of Jack Sparrow, but we've met his father. In Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest we meet Edward Teague, the keeper of the Pirate's Code and the father of Jack Sparrow. It becomes a bit more obvious where Sparrow's mannerisms come from after this. We know little about Jack's mother, not even her name. However, her head was shrunk and kept as a token by Jack's father, who eventually passed the head onto Sparrow. It can be seen hanging from his belt at the end Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End as well as during On Stranger Tides.
