Can Anyone Inform Me About the Pirate Code Laid Down By Morgan and Bartholomew?

What I love about the Pirates of the Caribbean movies is the inter-connectedness of the three movies. One thread that appears in them is a reference to the Code of Morgan and Bartholomew. Who are these two pirates? Are they real historical men, or are they imaginative creations of the Disney team?

Although the code is probably fictional, the pirates may be based on Admiral Sir Henry Morgan and Bartholomew Sharp.

Are these the same as "Captain Morgan" and "Black Bart"? I'm fairly certain that the code is absolutely fictional. There was a little part in the special features of the third film that even showed them making up the book - which was just such a monstrous piece of prop-work that they actually had to cut it down in order for it to be opened! Thanks for your reply!
