Hi,
In my opinion what you have is a mark from Sheffield 1818. Sheffield adopted the plan of combining the town mark (crown) and the date letter (i) particularly though not exclusively on smaller items. The maker/sponsor AH could be one of a couple depending on the item/style/etc. Sometimes the crown was above the date letter and sometimes below it depending upon the cycle.
I hope firstly that I'm correct(ish) and also that it helps.
Cheers,
silvertt
