When did the belief that the the Real Presence was NOT true begin?

Not talking transubstitution, which has a hard date when it was explicitly defined, but the real presence of Body and Blood of Jesus in Communion.

Christians from the earliest days believed that communion had the Real Presence of the Body and Blood in the bread and wine.

Depending on what you mean by Real Presence, I think many conservative protestant churches believe that now. If you mean the real presence of blood and human tissue, not so much but the Real Presence of a risen and victorious Lord then yes.
