If you have not done so already then have a look at Family Search.com "United Kingdom and Ireland" collection (access from the foot of the site's main page.

You will find images of original England Norfolk Parish Records, and also Bishops' transcripts and Archdeacons' transcripts for the county. Whilst none of these image sets is necessarily complete, if the relevant parts of the parish record for Binham have not survived then you may find the information you want in the annual transcripts from the PR which were completed by the parish and submitted to Bishop and Archdeacon.

Good hunting!
