He was born on June 22, 1837 to Oliver Fisher Winchester and Jane Ellen Hope in Baltimore, Maryland. His siblings include: Ann Rebecca Winchester (1835-1864) who married Charles B. Dye; and Hannah Jane Winchester who married Thomas Gray Bennett. William married Sarah Lockwood Pardee on September 30, 1862. The couple had one child, Annie Pardee Winchester, born June 15, 1866, who died 6 weeks later on July 25 from marasmus. William died in New Haven, Connecticut on March 7, 1881 of tuberculosis. He was buried in Evergreen Cemetery in New Haven. After his death, his wife Sarah Winchester went on to build the Winchester Mystery House.


The William Wirt Winchester Hospital in West Haven, Connecticut was established in his honour by his wife for the treatment of tuberculosis. The hospital was later sold and became a Veteran's Administration Hospital. The Private Pavilion at Yale New Haven Hospital was then renamed in his honour.
