The Guardian publishes the obituary of Christopher Heywood (1928-2021):
My friend Christopher Heywood, who has died aged 93, spent more than three decades as a lecturer and senior lecturer in English literature at Sheffield University, during which time he spent a couple of years from 1966 lecturing in Nigeria. For a further 10 years from 1988 he taught English at various universities in Japan. (Clyde Binfield)
One of his scholar interests were the Brontës and he was a frequent contributor (although usually quite controversial) to Brontë Studies.  You can check some of his sometimes far-fetched theories in this list of publications:
