Mobile's early history was defined by the outbreak of yellow fever. Prior to the outbreak in 1708 the original site of Mobile was located upriver at the 27 Mile Bluff, further inland. A ship carrying passengers who had docked in Havana and contracted yellow fever arrived in 1704 and with their disembarkation infected the locals. A significant population of local tribes and settlers perished in the outbreak. The yellow fever incident was not the last and over the next few years the population fluctuated as other diseases swept through and muted any hint of population growth.
The governor at the time, Governor Bienville, then ordered the town be relocated downriver to its present location at the confluence of the Mobile River and the Bay. The move was complete in 1711.
