William Teulon Swan Stallybrass (formerly Sonnenschein), 1883–1948, was a barrister, Principal of Brasenose College, Oxford from 1936,[1] and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Oxford from 1947, just before his death.[2]

He was colloquially known as "Sonners" at Oxford University due to his former name, Sonnenschein.

Stallybrass died unexpectedly in a railway accident when he stepped out of a moving train near Iver station in Buckinghamshire.[3] He was almost blind at the time.
