Using my historic newspaper databases, I first find "pimiento stuffed olives" appearing in the U.S. in 1897. The article says "They also sell a new and delicious preparation of pitted olives, stuffed with sweet Spanish pimientos which they call Pimolas."

I have no idea if they existed prior to this in Europe and were imported to the U.S. at this time.
