Do town records for the 1850's exist in for Tamworth?

I have a birth in Tamworth for Olive A. Eastman, born 26 Apr 1853 to George A. Eastman (he born 14 Feb 1829 in Tamworth).

I found an 1850 Tamworth census, and the only Eastmans there were:

1. Joseph W. Eastman, b. 1807, son of William and Sally (Edgerly). Residing with him was Abigail Eastman (nee Remick, first m/John Stevenson, and second wife of Jacob Eastman who m. Sarah Hackett. Jacob Eastman and Sarah Hackett's son William M. Eastman m. Dorothy Prescott.

2. Albert Eastman (b. 1819, son of William M. and Dorothy (Prescott). Living with Albert was his mother Dorothy Prescott, age 60.

George A. Eastman, father of Olive A., did not reside in Tamworth, so I am guessing that he came back to visit relatives when his daughter Olive was born, assuming that a close relative was the reason for his return. George's parents were William Eastman and Lovey Burleigh/Burley. They were married 28 Jul 1827 in Tamworth. Unfortunately, I have been unable to connect this William, probably born ca 1803, to any of the Tamworth Eastmans. I have seen earlier town records for Tamworth, but found no record for William, George A. or Olive.

I would appreciate any help with this puzzle.
