The Gills made a bright start to the second period, but couldn't add to their lead. The home side were awarded a penalty mid-way through the second half after Jack Vallis tripped Dan Lardner.
Jamie Beagle got a hand to King's penalty, but the powerful drive found the net to tie up the scores.
The momentum was with Corsham - and they were soon ahead thanks to Holton's header, which looped into the net.
Gillingham pushed to level the game with Vallis being deployed as an additional striker. However, this left the visitors vulnerable against a Corsham counter attack.
With time running out, Morris' well-placed shot ended any chance of a Gillginham comeback.
Despite Harry Baker scrambling home a consolation goal for the Gills, the Wiltshire side saw out the game to advance to the next round.
