Your great grandmother Jane Louisa Humphreys was born 1 November 1905, Marylebone, London (London Births & Baptisms 1813-1906) and baptised 13 November 1905 St. Marylebone, the daughter of Jane Louisa Humphreys (single).

Jane L Humphreys married Alfred Davis 1929, Lambeth, 1d/355, q March 1929.

Your tree on ancestry.uk has Alfred born 1891, Clapham, London with his father James M Davis, born 1853 London, St. Olaves.The only positive way to Jane's spouse is a copy of their marriage certificate which will outline Alfred's age and the name of his father, and usually the father's occupation, and then work back.
