Silver Spoon - Hallmark

I have recently been given a Fiddleback teaspoon that belonged to an ancestor and would like help with the meaning of the Hallmarks and to date the spoon.
Thank you.

Hi there,
My interpretation of the marks are: Assayed London (Leopard’s head), in 1828 (letter ‘n’) as sterling silver (lion passant) duty paid (head of George IV) and presented for assay by William Trayes (that mark registered in 1822).
Hope I’m right and that it helps.

Thank you, Tony. It sounds pretty good to me,
