One can quickly search for these symbols in the OED web edition.
That is actually what the page I cited is for, to give names of the
symbols which allow the symbol to be searched for in the text by
including that name between # signs in the search string.
But to do this, one needs to have paid $550 US for a yearly subscription
to the service. :-(
Perhaps some user of this list has such a subscription or has access to
the site through an institution that has such a subscription and could
help Asmus out by looking up the OED use of these symbols or its
citations of sources in which the symbols occur.
