The left-hand woodblock of the first two shown above is signed by Tokokuni III, the assumed name of Utagawa Kunisada I, and has other marks indicating it was published in 1854 (year of the Wood Tiger) by Daikokuya Heikichi. It is the left panel of a triptych by this artist, as shown complete in the following link to the Boston Museum of Fine Arts:
The other woodblock, is a more modern print from publisher Uchida and signed "Onisaburo" (仁三郎), an artist previously identified by this forum's I. Nagy as Deguchi Onisaburo (出口王仁三郎）1871-1948). See the embedded link below for the earlier thread concerning Onisaburo.
