Where did Pirate talk originate?

MMDE: Pirate talk originated with the seafaring pirates of old

Current: Pirate talk originated in Disneys 1950 "Treasure Island" movie

Oooh arrr, shiver me timbers landlubbers!

If it doesn't sounds too obvious a question, where did this distinctive pirate talk originate?

If you thought it must have been with, well, pirates on the high seas think again. It was in fact first heard in Disneys 1950 movie "Treasure Island", and started a trend that's now ingrained so deeply into our culture it's true origins are largely forgotten.

There's even a full online dctionary of pirate terms and phrases, so yo! ho! ho! and a bottle of rum, fill yer boots me hearties!
