from The Floral World and Garden Guide, June 1873, p.165:
Yellow Roses.
It will be of some service to the amateur, perhaps, if we run through the list of yellow teas in alphabetical order, and make such remarks on the more important of them as appear necessary.
Devoniensis, not yellow enough to be classed (in this class) with yellow roses, but included in the list just to show that we have heard of it.

From Mackay's The Australian Agriculturalist, 1897, p.275:
Specialities in Roses.—The number of kinds catalogued is unlimited. The great desideratum is, of course, to secure those which are of vigorous growth, good, healthy, and pleasing foliage, good-shaped flowers, and free-blooming disposition. Those qualities are found largely among the tea-scented and Noisette kinds, the following amongst them:
Devoniensis [sic], pale yellow
...These and many others are reliable for garden decoration and for cut flowers.
