Received Pronunciation - summary
And the winner is ...?
(1) Lluyd 1724 (= English term)
(2) Walker 1791
(3) Duponceau 1818.
It's only Walker who uses the term in connection with English pronunciation in England. Lluyd addresses the Welsh reader, and Duponceau seems to focus on the American English speaker of his time.
