not what I meant.
I know mitrailleuse was an early french machinegun

I am looking for when and and where a anti infantry ammunition for cannons was first used.
It was called "cannister" in napoleonic era, or so it was called in wargaming manuals, but I doubt it was not used before.

My mistake you might then check this article to see if can assist you. If not then I recommend you contact the US Army Field Artillery School and question the liason office.
