However early on with the arrival of the Spaniards, smallpox and other new diseases reduced the Ohlone population. In 1777, Mission Santa Clara was founded by Franciscan missionary Padre Junipero Serra and was located in San Jose. In 1843, Rancho Pastoria de las Borregas was granted to his wife Inez Castro. Portions of the land given in this grant developed into the cities of Mountain View and Sunnyvale. Two years in 1844, another land grant was provided to Lupe Yñigo, one of the few Native Americans to hold land grants.
His land grant was first called Rancho Posolmi, named in honor of a village of the Ohlone that once stood in the area. Rancho Posolmi was known as Rancho Ynigo. Martin Murphy Jr. came to California with his father as part of the Stephens-Townsend-Murphy Party in 1844. In 1850, Martin Murphy Jr. bought a piece of Rancho Pastoria de las Borregas for $12,500. Murphy established a wheat ranch named Bay View. Murphy had the first wood frame house in Santa Clara County; the house was demolished in 1961 but was reconstructed in 2008 as the Sunnyvale Heritage Park Museum. When he died in 1884, his land was divided among his heirs. In 1860, The San Francisco and San Jose Rail Road was allowed to lay tracks on Bay View and established Murphy Station. Lawrence Station was established on the southern edge of Bay View. In the 1870s, small fruit orchards replaced many large wheat farms, because wheat farming turned uneconomical due to county and property tax laws and soil degradation. In 1871, Dr. James M. Dawson and his wife Eloise established the first fruit cannery in the county.
Fruit agriculture for canning soon became a major industry in the county. The invention of the refrigerated rail car further increased the viability of an economy based upon fruit; the fruit orchards became so prevalent that in 1886, the San Jose Board of Trade called Santa Clara County the "Garden of the World". In the 1880s, Chinese workers made up one third of the farm labor in Santa Clara County; this percentage reduced over time. In the following decade, the 1890s, many immigrants from Italy, the Azores and Japan arrived to work in the orchards. In 1897, Walter Everett Crossman began selling real estate, he advertised the area as "Beautiful Murphy" and in the 1900s, as "the City of Destiny". In 1897, Encina School opened as the first school in Murphy. Children in the town had to travel to Mountain View for school. In 1901, the residents of Murphy were informed they could not use the names Encinal or Murphy for their post office. Sunnyvale was given its current name on March 24, 1901, it was named Sunnyvale as it is located in a sunny region adjacent to areas with more fog.

Today, a water tower painted to resemble the first Libby's fruit cocktail can label identifies the former site of the factory. In 1906, the Joshua Hendy Iron Works relocated from San Francisco to Sunnyvale after the company's building was destroyed by fire after the 1906 earthquake; the ironworks was the first non-agricultural industry in the town. The company switched from producing mining equipment to other products such as marine steam engines. In 1912, the residents of Sunnyvale voted to incorporate, Sunnyvale became an official city. Fremont High School first opened in 1923. In 1924, Edwina Benner was elected to her first term as mayor of Sunnyvale, she was the second female mayor in the history of the state of California. In 1930, Congress decided to place the West Coast dirigible base in Sunnyvale after "buying" the 1,000-acre parcel of farmland bordering the San Francisco Bay from the city for $1.
