My phone has had Spapp monitoring installed on it. Is there any way to find out when this was done?

To check if the spyware was still installed, go to Settings > Security > Device Administrators. You should find it under a dubious name or something very familiar like Android Manager. Uncheck it and then install an anti-malware from the Play Store. Scan your phone and it should be deleted.

Unfortunately, it's impossible to say exactly when the application was installed.
