Jane feels so guilty to having consented to a secret engagement, which was contrary to her principles and sense of right, she regarded her secret engagemnet as a "great misconduct" and felt the need to apologize to everyone whom she felt was affected -- re chap 53 --
"Oh! you are too scrupulous, indeed you are," cried Emma, warmly, and taking her hand. "You owe me no apologies; and every body to whom you might be supposed to owe them, is so perfectly satisfied, so delighted even -- "
Jane certainly owed apologies regarding the secret engagement to Mr and Mrs Weston and Mr Churchill, as they were Frank's father, stepmother and uncle -- that is why Emma said that Jane owed her no apologies, and those to whom she owed apologies (Mr Churchill and the Westons) are satisfied to forgive her, and even delighted to accept her as Frank's fiance
Perhaps jane felt she owed Emma apologies for not preventing Frank from flirting with Emma, but according to Frank's letter, Jane had tried to stop him -- chap 50 --
