You may be interested to know that I found a reference to The Wales in chapter 1 of Gibbon's The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire .
"[Palestine].. was a territory scarcely superior to Wales, either in fertility or extent."
Delightful. Yet there must be earlier usages of The Wales floating around somewhere....
