Those marriages seem too early, even the 1804 one is 22yrs before Jane was born. I know it's not impossible, many had babies in their 40s, but could there be a John and Catherine who married at a later date

Jane and John Grant were married in Chester, so I thought I'd try Chester for John Humpreys too.  I found one in 1821 to Catherine Thomas, which I think is more likely than 1804 or 1800. Also he was a cabinetmaker. So I'm pretty sure its them.
I have gone on findmypast myself now.
I found 3 earlier births in Wrexham to a John and Catherine Humphreys, Elizabeth 1821, Mary Ann 1823, William Thomas 1825, (Thomas could be after maiden name of mother), and the father John was a joiner, so maybe they moved out to Gwersyllt before they had Jane in 1826.
I cannot find any apart from Jane on any censuses, or find any deaths for John or Catherine though.

Witnesses Elith Humphreys , William Maitchill

Could Elith ( Elizabeth ?) be a sister of John

I thought that myself, so looked to see if I could find an Elizabeth and John with same parents. I found a William and Elizabeth, the births were 1787 for Elizabeth, and 1793 for John, which would mean John didn't marry till he was 28.
At John's baptism his father was a baker, but no occupation on Elizabeth's.
William and Elizabeth are family names, so could be right parents.

My husband has Elizabeth as his great grandmother and we're in touch with a family who have Margaret as their great grandmother. They took us to Marubbi's cafe when we visited them in Wrexham a few years ago.
