No idea when the first was, but page 11 of the first edition of Bell News in
1881 had some 1881s of Stedman Triples.

There are many given in Bell News - often using a 'link' block to make it

Subject: [Bell Historians] Date touch history

Does anyone know when the first date touch was rung?

There's nothing in the Ringing World index earlier than the 1990s but I was
ringing date touches in the 60s and we didn't invent the idea so I assume it
was much earlier.
