Not as far as I can see.
It was used by Blasius in 1857 for what we now know as Microtus agrestis, but Bonaparte's version has precedence.
No earlier occurrences are listed by Neave (here or here -- the former is better, but often down unfortunately), nor anywhere else I checked.
You'll have to give a reference in support to this claim.
