I have the whole family tree from 1837, when registration started, down to today. 
It's before that I'm stuck on. Cannot find births or marriages of any who might be family of Jane Humphreys. There are no parish records on ancestry that are from that area.
Her husband John Grant is even worse, there's not even a clue where in Scotland he was from, and the name is so common there.
Jane is the one I'd like to know more about before she married John Grant.

It may be worth looking at FindMyPast. Even if you have to pay to view.

I've had the wrong birth year for Jane, working it out from her birth to her death, it was 1826 not 1827. I have found a baptism in Wrexham 16 Nov 1826, on findmypast, but no parents names, unless they are on the actual document which I will have to pay for, unless one of you guys already has a subscription.
I have also found 4 marriages for 4 John Humphreys in Brymbo the old parish for Gresford. I do need her mother's name to see which marriage it might be - Anne, Elizabeth, Margaret or Roseanna?

Brymbo would have been  in the parish of Wrexham if John married before 1826.

Gresford was a different parish.

Maybe he moved to Gresford after he married, as there are no marriages in Gresford for a John Humphreys, unless they are not online yet. I don't seem to be getting any nearer to knowing.

The parents of Jane bapt 16th Nov 1826 were John and Catherine.
John was a joiner, abode Gwersyllt.  Looking good so far.

Gwersyllt was in the parish of Gresford, before 1851.

http://www.genuki.org.uk/big/wal/DEN/Gwersyllt/

Moss is very  close to Gwersyllt , and at that time was  in the parish of Wrexham, before Brymbo became a  parish of it`s own in 1844.

 Hope this helps.

Unfortunately I don`t subscribe to FindMyPast, I just called in a favour from someone I know.

A FindMyPast search comes up with these matches that are quite local. Of course the couple may have been from anywhere.

HUMPHREYS  JOHN      1800  Denbigh Marriages  Llangollen, Denbighshire, Wales   
ROBERTS  CATHERINE      1800  Denbigh Marriages  Llangollen, Denbighshire, Wales   
Also Banns for this Llangollen marriage.
   
HUMPHREYS  JOHN      1804  Denbigh Banns  Wrexham, Denbighshire, Wales 
DAVIES  CATHERINE      1804  Denbigh Banns  Wrexham, Denbighshire, Wales 
Only banns .

There is a document held at Denbighshire Archives.  If you contact them  with the details they will probably tell you what it is.
