William Harwood born before his mom Catherine Phesant?

I have William Harwood, (Capt) of Martin's Hundred as being born 1599 and died 1644.
His father, George Harwood, born 1583 and died 1661 (looks odd enough, yeah?)
But then William's mother/George's wife, Catherine Phesant (or Pheasant) is supposedly born 1602 and died 1632.

So somethings up here, because I don't think his mother can be born 3 years after him, plus George lived an awfully long while. Everywhere I look online it says the same thing, and nobody seems to question this oddity.
Perhaps George remarried someone younger later on?

Any information you can provide would be most appreciative. Thank you
