up until the year 1899  the area was known as Cookham and Bray...
In 1999.. Maidenhead was created including Cookham and Bray..all in the county of Berkshire,, BUT Taplow and Wooburn  were in the county of Buckinghamshire..
Hence on Censes recordes If you were in Eather of  Taplow or Wooburn, You would have been out of the county

I realise that Maidenhead, Cookham & Bray are all in Berkshire and that Taplow & Wooburn are in Buckinghamshire (being on the other side of the Thames  :)  )  I assume you are referring to the different area of birth for Phoebe.  ;)

Sorry, I am still not sure what you are trying to establish with William & Phoebe.  :-[

ADDED 1841 census has all the children as Y for born in county this would be true whether they were born in Wooburn or Taplow
