Bell tents

An item I associate with the British forces in the Crimea is the bell tent. According to this piece about Mr and Mrs Driscoll of the Royal Scots in the Crimea
Each bell tent accommodated sixteen or seventeen men, but where there was a woman, fourteen including the woman and her husband.

I'm not sure when Bell tents came in - I thought maybe late Napoleonic - anyone know?
