Tolosana Spanish?

Listed only by Wedgwood, who says:

The name occurred in the specification of the former organ at Saville Cathedral, as given in Hamilton's “Catechism of the Organ” and in Hopkins' and Rimbault's treatise. It appears to have been an ordinary stop named after the town of Toulouse.

Could this “ordinary stop” have been a mixture? All the examples in Osiris[1] are mixtures (see below); compare with Corneta Tolosana.
