I think you are wrong to assume that these terms must have a distinct
origin. The neologistic suffixes "-olater" and "-oclast" are
sufficiently well understood in themselves that no use of them in
combination with "Milton" need depend on or refer to any earlier
example. As you probably know, "bardolater," for a worshiper in the
cult of Shakespeare, is quite commonly seen.
