Looking for links to Robert Gower (1722-1806) from area near Holt, Norfolk, Eng

I have been trying to find anyone or anything that can stretch my family line back beyond an initial link to England. My ancestor, Robert Gower, came to the US from England, being born on October 9, 1722 in a village "between Woodroe and Welch and near Holt, about eighteen miles from the city of Norwich." Robert's father's name was also Robert (1696-1771), who remained in Norfolk County and was married to Margaret Harrison (1698-1768). Robert Jr.s siblings included:

John Gower
Jane Gower
William Gower
John Gower
Edward Gower
James Gower
Arthur Gower
Thomas Gower
Ann Gower

This is about where the trail ends, as Robert Sr.'s father in any genealogy records I've found is simply listed as "Gower" and believed to be born about 1673 and was married to Mary Moss, born about 1677.
If any of you fellow Gower relatives have family lines that link up to any of these last persons, or if you otherwise know of others who can fit into the line about this period and location, I would be very grateful for your help (and very glad to make your acquaintance)!

Jeff Gower (of Pocatello, Idaho, US)
