I think the first picture is of a drive for a pedal powered grinder of some sort and the third is of a shock link from a plow hitch. ?????

I agree on the plow hitch. The pedal unit could have been from a grinder, a churn , or other machine that needed rotation. Even a fanning mill.

The ring thing I don't have a clue, and the last one I've seen somewhere but... ???

I think item two is a bed warmer pan, minus its lid. Hot coals would be placed in it and cover closed to pre warm bedding.
Item three is possibly a manual well drilling weight?
Item one is obviously some type of pedal power... but no clue for what. Last item escapes me, save maybe some type of churn?
My guesses.

Picture 2 may possibly be associated with foundry work; I've seen crucibles for melting metal (e.g., babbit, aluminum, bronze, etc.) that are made of some sort of high-temperature stoneware. In order to fit down into the foundry furnace, they have no exterior handles, but are tapered slightly. Once the metal inside the stoneware crucible is molten, it is removed using a tool designed for the purpose -- and then set down into a tool very similar to the one shown in your second picture. It is then lifted and poured into the waiting mould. Such a tool has one handle for small pours; larger-volume pours require a tool with two handles, so that another person can help lift it. Certainty rating for this ID: 45-55%.

Picture 4 is the agitator mechanism from an early washing machine. The wing nut keeps a small flywheel attached, and that flywheel could have been either turned by hand, or driven by a small gasoline engine. The driven shaft had an wooden agitator disk that could slide up and down, and floated level on the surface of the water in the tub. That wooden disk featured four stout dowels facing downward (somewhat resembling a cow's teats), which protruded down into the clothes and swished them back and forth in the soapy water. Certainty rating for this ID: 99.44%.

What's the story behind these items? They'd make great wall hangers...

If you're not going to keep these four items, don't scrap them out right away -- the steampunk crowd loves relics such as these. You might make a few bucks at a flea market.
