Ritsumeikan gives the role as "かげきよ" ("Kagekiyo"). I see in Kabuki21's bio for Nakamura Utaemon III that, in 1831/05, he played the role of Kagekiyo in "Onna Kagekiyo":

As it happens, Hankyu has a print that appears to be from the same performance as the Ritsumeikan one, and they give the date as 1831/05 as well:

I'm not a ton of help interpreting Hankyu's description, but I can see it transcribes Utaemaon's role as Kagekiyo (written "景きよ") so I think the sources are in good agreement.
