Norfolk Ancestors

I have found Henry Kerrison marrying Mary Harvey in Wighton Norfolk in 1765, but can not find their births in Wighton Parish registers. Has anyone come across them?
Another poser is that a lot of my ancestors seem to come from Trunch, Mundesley and Knapton Parishes in the late 1700's and I was told years ago that those registers did not survive into archives. Can anyone tell me if there are other sources I can look at or if indeed that is a full stop. Thanks

He is on several Ancestry trees. One has his baptism as 1740, Wighton Norfolk, with parents Adam Kerrison and Sarah Mayham. Not sure where they found this!
