Yellow Fever Deaths, Bermuda 1853

Yellow Fever Deaths, Bermuda 1853


There were outbreaks of Yellow Fever in 1829, 1837, 1843, 1844, 1853, and 1856, the worst was that of 1853. It was believed that the outbreak arrived on a ship from Cuba, in July 1853, and swept over the islands until December that same year, claiming a total of more than 650 victims from the civilian, military, and convict population.

The following is a list of the convicts, and one guard, who died on board the Tenedos Convict Hospital Ship between the 9th July and the 9th December 1853.
