Perhaps this one deserves some attention, although I am not quite certain either. I read it as if Bellinger was a contemporary, and therefore this Bellinger is a candidate:
Peter Bellinger Brodie (1815-1897)

His uncle Sir Benjamin Collins Brodie was was president of the Royal College of Surgeons, in 1844. In 1858 he was elected president of the Royal Society and the first surgeon to hold this post. In 1828 he became surgeon to King George IV.

  Hello everyone,

  K.H. writes in his famous letter # 10 (emphasis added):

  "In other words we believe in MATTER alone, in matter as visible nature
  and matter in its invisibility as the invisible omnipresent omnipotent
  Proteus with its unceasing motion which is its life, and which nature
  draws from herself since she is the great whole outside of which nothing
  can exist. For as Bellinger truly asserts "motion is a manner of
  existence that flows necessarily out of the essence of matter; that
  matter moves by its own peculiar energies; that its motion is due to the
  force which is inherent in itself; that the variety of motion and the
  phenomena that result proceed from the diversity of the properties of
  the qualities and of the combinations which are originally found in the
  primitive matter" of which nature is the assemblage and of which your
  science knows less than one of our Tibetan Yak-drivers of Kant's

  Does anyone know who this Bellinger was?
