You seem to have mixed two trees
Your 1, 3, 4, 5, 7 I hope are Philadelphus tomentotus
2 and 6 with winged fruit Euonymus fimbriatus

.., I am thoroughly surprised:

1. Indeed there were two trees nearby. I realize I had not bothered to check their leaves in spite of seeing the difference in fruits.
2. Expected only to fetch genus due to less of aspects in photos, you have provided me two full IDs.
