Son of Alois Hitler, Jr., and his Irish-born wife Bridget Dowling. Alois was the half brother of Adolph Hitler. Adolph referred to William as his "loathsome nephew."

Alois left William & Bridget in England and returned to Germany in 1914. In 1939, William and his mother went to the United States on a lecture tour. They were in the US when World War II broke out and could not leave the country. In 1944, William was cleared to join the US Navy after making a special request to President Roosevelt. He served in the US Navy and the Naval Medical Corps before being discharged in 1947.

Following the war, William wanted to disassociate himself with his infamous Uncle, so he left the public light and changed his last name to Stuart-Houston. He married a German woman. They moved to Patchogue on Long Island, New York, and had four sons. William ran a business analyzing blood samples for hospitals.
