Norfolk Family History Society transcription has 7 January 1831 for the marriage, so check the original record and see what you think it reads.
The witnesses are John Walden and Frances Walden

Their son Robert was baptized Swanton Morley 6 November 1831, father shoemaker.

One baptism to consider:
Weston Longville
28 February 1813 Robert son of Henry & Sarah Brigham father labourer.

ADDED
Except its not in Erpingham and having looked at the census he consistently states he was born in Erpingham, so treetotal's reference is the better choice
