An Irishman’s Diary on Bridget Dowling, Hitler’s Sister-in-law

Bridget Stuart-Houston, who died on November 18th, 1969, began life as Bridget Dowling and was for a time known as Bridget Hitler, sister-in-law for a period to Adolf Hitler, thus providing him with a family connection to Ireland. 

We know from her gravestone in the Holy Sepulchre Catholic Cemetery in Coram, Long Island, that she was born on July 3rd, 1891, in Dublin but not much is known about her early life.

From the 1901 Irish census, we learn that she grew up at Fleming Place, near Mespil Road, Ballsbridge.
