I've no idea if this was first, but it certain predates the three you quote:

The fourth peal Felstead has listed as being rung at St Sepulchre was 
5000 Union Bob Royal, rung for the ASCY on 30 May 1741. (details in 
Morris, p 106; I presume the peal board is still in the tower; according 
to Morris "Union Bob Royal" is what we would today call Oxford Treble 
Bob Royal).
