There was one old movie where the pirate captain actually says "Arrrgh" and it doesn't seem silly or ridiculous or affected. I think it might have been Blackbeard.

I think Robert Newton is credited with creating the Standard Pirate patois. A combination of the written dialog and an exaggeration of his own accent.
