The New England Arms co shotgun was more than likely made by Crescent valued under $100

N.R. Davis & Co. were located in Freetown Mass. circa 1853 - 1917. In 1917 the company merged with Warner Arms Co. changing its name to Davis-Warner Arms Co. AJAX was a trade name used on hammerless double shotguns produced by the Davis-Warner Arms Corp. circa 1917 to 1930. Around $250 or so.

To date I haven't been able to find out the actual manufaturer of the Henry Arms , I suspect hidden somewhere on it is a Belgian proof mark ... if so let me know...
