I made all of these available for e-Sword. They're not perfect, but they are pretty good. A couple of corrections to some of the descriptions:

Diodati's notes were actually printed in 1643, they are a translation of his 1640-41 Italian Bible footnotes.

I did not convert the Dutch notes from a Sword Project Module, but did the work based on a set of the notes online here

Here is a fuller list of the scholars involved in the English Annotations:

Mr. Ley - Pentateuch
Mr. Downham - Joshua, Judges, Ruth, Samuel
Dr. Gouge - Kings, Chronicles, Ezra, Nehemiah and Esther
Mr. Meric Casaubon - Psalms
Mr. Francis Taylor - Proverbs
Dr. Reignolds - Ecclesiastes
Mr. Swalwood - Song of Solomon
Mr. Gataker - Isaiah, Jeremiah, and Lamentations
Mr. Pemberton - Ezekiel, Daniel, and the minor Prophets
Mr. Ley - Gospels
Mr. Abbot or Mr. Reading - Acts
Dr. Featley - Paul’s Epistles
Mr. Tooker - Catholic Epistles and Revelation

And the English Annotations are not Westminster Assembly Annotations. It should be noted that while the English Annotators benefited from the closeness to the Westminster Assembly, they were not however “undertaken by the Directions or with the Consent of the Assembly; nor were the major Part Members of the Assembly: nor did any of the Assembly review the work when it was finished: So that it cannot, upon any Account, be said to be theirs.” - Baxter, Richard, Edmund Calamy, Joseph Whately, and Andrew Dickson White. An Abridgement of Mr. Baxter’s History of His Life and Times: With an Account of the Ministers, &c. Who Were Ejected after the Restauration, of King Charles II: Their Apology for Themselves, and Their Adherents, Containing the Grounds of Their Nonconformity: Their Treatment in the Reign of King Charles, and King James, and after the Revolution: And the Continuation of Their History, to the Passing of the Bill against Occasional Conformity, in 1711. 2nd ed. Vol. 1. London: Printed for John Lawrence, 1713. 86. Print.
