Top pic looks like choisya. Bottom pic - assuming that you're not expecting an apple - possibly crabapple (some indication of size might help)

Choisya tenata Sundance I think for the top one and maybe quince for the fruit?

I am thinking quince too Pamg.

the bottom one is Chaenomeles japonica if it has any thorns, which does produce useable quince fruits. If it has no thorns, its Cydonia oblonga, which becomes a tree - both produce quince

If you are interested in using the quince a useful thing is to ppel and chop one fruit only (there is not a lot of flesh round the rather large core) and add it to an apple pie - gives it a great tang.
