War Of 1812 Admiral Cockburn?

::: Family Crest Forum thank you --- Could this be Admiral Cockburn from the War of 1812? King's Pattern serving spoon by William Eley & William Fearn the date code is (a) which indicates 1816 with the Crowned Jester symbol :::

::: The Family Crest finder says "Admiral To The Late Sir George, G.C.B., and it lists the two arms holding a pike. The family motto is "ITA" which means "Thus" and "Vigilans Et Audax" which means "Watchful And Bold" :::

The Order Of The Bath was re-constituted in 1815, so I assume the wreath around the two crests somehow indicates this high ranking? My instinct is to say that the wreath and the cross is somehow meant to resemble the Royal Order Of The Garter belt motif, but this is just a theory.

::: Also, just to be clear, Admiral Cockburn is most well-known in America for certain actions in the War Of 1812, including but not limited to the Burning Of Washington and the fire damaged the White House. However, Admiral Cockburn also escorted Napoleon on his Exile trip, and Admiral Cockburn reformed the often unfair treatment of British sailors of lower-rank, and he served in various high-ranking positions in British government, so I did not mean to only link him to the War Of 1812, only this is how he is most well-known in the USA, and I do apologize for not placing him within the proper historical context :::

Sorry, intended to say "Crowned Leopard Head," this symbol has always looked like a "Jester" to me and somehow it made its way into my post, for some reason the "Crowned Leopard Head" hallmark on silver before 1822 has always looked more like a Jester rather than a Crowned Leopard Head.
