It may go back even further than that but A.J. Pitman certainly
published 5040s of it in the 1920s

While Eddie Martin is receiving such glory, might I add that it is
very difficult to get in ahead of PABS but, when I was searching for
pallindromic comps of Erin Triples I had realised that they couldn’t
be had in Stedman using ordinary singles; but could be had using
singles made in 4-5 in the middle of a six. I was a bit disappointed
that they did not seem to yield too much if used as an integral part
of a course but could be as he illustrates, with say Hudson’s courses.
I sent in a variation of Dexter's No 2 of Thurstans for publication,
but don’t know if or when it was published- probably in the late
1990s. It looked rather clumsy set out under SHLQ columns, but there
we are.
