The Return of the King, LoTR Appendix B, The Tale of Years: The Third Age

[At the end of the Kin-strife:]
... [The sons of Castamir the Usurper] sailed away, and established themselves at Umbar. There they made a refuge for all the enemies of the king.... Umbar remained at war with Gondor for many lives of men, a threat to its coastlands and to all traffic on the sea.

... Minardil, son of Eldacar, was slain at Pelargir by the Corsairs of Umbar. (They were led by Angamaitë and Sangahyando, the great-grandsons of Castamir.)

The Return of the King, LoTR Appendix A, Annals of the Kings and Rulers: Gondor and the Heirs of Anárion

The rebels of Umbar had never ceased to make war on Gondor since the death of Kastamir, attacking its ships and raiding its coast at every opportunity. ... Learning through spies that Minardil was at Pelargir, suspecting no peril since the crushing of Harad and Umbar by his father, Angomaite and Sangahyanda, leaders of the Corsairs of Umbar, great-grandsons of Kastamir, made a raid up Anduin, slew the king, ravaged Pelargir and the coasts, and escaped with great booty.
