The earliest sources I found were
A. Williamson, Journal für Praktische Chemie, 1851, 52, 336-342 (german) DOI: 10.1002/prac.18510520139
A. Williamson ,Q. J. Chem. Soc., 1852, 4, 106-112, DOI: 10.1039/QJ8520400083
A. Williamson, Q. J. Chem. Soc., 1852, 3, 229-239 DOI: 10.1039/QJ8520400229
A. Williamson, Liebigs Ann.Chem., 1851, 77, 37-49 (german) DOI: 10.1002/jlac.18510770104
A. Williamson, Liebigs Ann.Chem., 1852, 81, 73-87 (german) DOI: 10.1002/jlac.18520810104

As you can see, most of them are in german, which I found somewhat strange, because he apparently lived in the UK during that time. Nevertheless someone might add one or two of these papers to the article.

As far as i know, german was up to the first world war the international used language for chemistry, as english is it today for most parts of science. -- (talk) 09:55, 12 February 2008 (UTC)
