4 Dublin spoons, maker ID? Date?

These came in a set of 3. From what I can tell online they are from Dublin, Ireland. However, the date mark is missing..... of course. Also, the maker seems to be conflicted between 3 names.

Many thanks, I appreciate the help! I would've never guessed Canadian. Any reason why he would use pseudo British marks along with a Scottish mark?

English marks? Any help with this spoon?

Found a spoon today and it looks quite old. The marks look like English with the lion but the other mark looks like a Thistle? I thought the Thistle was Scottish? It doesn't make any since to me... and no date letter? What is going on here? https://www.antiquers.com/attachments/20190716_174307_resiz...

Is this E. Jaccard and Co.?

Jaccard? I can't tell if the spoon is plated or possibly coin silver? Any input is great thanks! http://www....
