...nice finds Ally. The Trapezoidal buckle dates from roughly 1570-1700, so late 16th century to end of 17th century. This was most probably a spur buckle.

...the other is a spectacle buckle, or technically a cast copper alloy double loop oval buckle, which dates from approximately 1350-1650. mid 14th century to mid 17th century, although they are most associated with the 16th and 17th centuries. They were most widely used as fastenings on personal dress. Hope this helps   ;)
