Guy, thanks ever so much for the help!

You may have seen this already, but the MFA has a print which shows him:

http://www.mfa.org/collections/object/wada-heita-tanenaga-egara-no-heida-killing-a-giant-snake-465579

and gives an alternate name - Wada Heita Tanenaga - with kanji 和田平太胤長.

The fifth character there has marked similarities to the one in the print, so perhaps the one in the print is just a slightly different (or perhaps erroneous) version of that one?

Anyway, I think we're on the right track here. Thanks again for the help!

Noel
