The earliest source would seem to be the Mishna Shabbat 19:2. It is brought in the Rambam (Milah 2:2) and the Shulchan Aruch (YD 264:3) as well.

It would seem (because I don't see it in the Mishna) that the earliest usage is the Tosefta Brachot 6:12 (7:12 in some editions): המוהל צריך ברכה לעצמו או' ברוך על המילה The Mohel must make a bl …
