Could someone tell me the word's 1st appearances in English?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nocturia

Nocturia (derived from Latin nox, night, and Greek [τα] ούρα, urine), also called nycturia (Greek νυκτουρία), is defined by the International Continence Society (ICS) as “the complaint that the individual has to wake at night one or more times for voiding (i.e. to urinate).”[1]

Its causes are varied and, in many patients, difficult to discern.[2]

OED nocturia, n.
The condition of being aroused from sleep abnormally frequently by the
need to urinate.
1911 W. A. N. Dorland Illustr. Med. Dict. (ed. 6) 558/2 Nocturia, excessive urination at night.

Google Books looks as if it might have a number of 19th century occurrences,
but the first few were obvious misreads, and I can't be bothered looking
further.

Thank you. Very helpful.
