Does anyone have any info on these marks?

I have a salt spoon, could anyone shed some light on where it was made and when?

This is an English sterling hallmark. However the lack of an assay office mark and a date letter make identification more difficult. The shape of the duty mark indicates a date of c1798. The lion passant sterling mark looks like London, although the maker’s initials suggest to me Joseph Goss of Exeter.
