looking at dates, more likely, if Thomas did marry an Ann Majour, she would be the sister-in-law (in the modern sense of the term) of Humphrey's wife Elizabeth, not Elizabeth's daughter by a previous husband.

he may have married the step-daughter of his brother, or Ann Majour may be attached to him incorrectly.
