Yes, there were tabular predecessors:
1793: Jérôme Lalande, after Cassini in 1770,
1827: Thomas Lynn (horary tables),
1829: maybe Janet Taylor (??).
For more details, see Charles H. Cotter in "History of Nautical Astronomy". Why G. Littlehales hav'nt note their name? What was the reason why ? I have no answer.
