Thomas & Jemima Woodley - Long Wittenham, Berkshire (now Oxfordshire) - 1800's

I'm new at this, so if any of my information is rather vague, forgive me. But I hope it's all correct, or nearly so (I got most of my information from Census').

I live in Abingdon, Oxfordshire, and I'm trying to trace back my Mum's side of the family, the Woodleys.
The furthest back I've reached is Thomas Woodley, born abt. 1826, and his wife, who I believe was called Jemima (though spelling may differ), born abt. 1825. They had 6 children that I know of -
Alfred James Woodley, Anne Elizabeth Woodley, Eliza Sarah Woodley, Harriet Eliza Woodley, Richard Woodley & Tom Woodley -
all of them were born in Long Wittenham, where they were living at the time, and where the family lived for a long time after that. I believe that Thomas' Mother was called Mary as she appears living with him in 1841, so I assume, perhaps, that her husband was dead. Apparently she was born abt. 1786, in Long Wittenham.

If anyone can help me get back any further, or have anything else they think might be of worth to me, I'd be grateful to know.
Many thanks.
