Help wanted about 'George Ellborough' by Mrs. J. Cooke, Bristol. Please respond to

I am directly descended from George Ellborough who was baptised in 1804 at Longworth, Berkshire. George was the illegitimate son of Mary Ellborough. I am trying to discover the origins of his mother Mary, but so far without success. I know George spent all his adult life in Longworth working as an agricultural labourer. He married Mary Thatcher from Fyfield in 1827, raised 12 children and remained there until his death in 1882. I have had many local parish records and overseers’ records checked for information but unfortunately have drawn a blank. I need to find out if George actually remained in Longworth during his childhood. Is there anyone out there who can help me? I am particularly interested in any data relating to farms in the area and details of any farm workers. I have a great deal of background information relating to this surname, which I will gladly share with any interested parties.
