I agree with Hans Olof that it is difficult to be certain from your images but I think that No. 2 is by Shuncho and No.4 by Shunzan.
: Mary,

: No. 1 is a reproduction of Hiroshige's Masaki atari yori Suijin no mori uchikawa, Sekiya no sato wo miru zu ("View of Suijin Grove and Sekiya Village, seen from near Masaki") from the series Meisho Edo hakkei ("One hundred famous views of Edo", 1856-1859).

: No. 3 is a reproduction of a print from Utamaro's series Fry ko-dakara awase ("Elegant comparisons of little treasures", ca 1802).

: As for the others, I haven't been able to identify the artists, but both appear to be by late 18th century artists, perhaps Kiyonaga and one of his contemporaries. Both appear to have signatures on the right, so better images would most likely give us the answer.

: Best regards,
