Kawamura Bumpo 河村 文鳳 (1779 - 1821), an artist from Kyoto, influenced Hokusai for his Mangas. One of his books is on my website :
The wikipedia page in Japanese about Takehara Shunchosai mentions that he is mostly famous for his drawings of famous places (meisho-e), and indeed, none of the books he illustrated listed by Ritsumeikan and Waseda fall in the manga category.
(click on the numbers in the "view pages" column to see the books)
Concerning the mangas, on the wikipedia page in Swedish about Mangas, a historian (Jaqueline Bernd) gives a reference that claims that the term manga predates Hokusai. Unfortunately, that reference is not accessible to me.
