A son, Gabriel Arthur, was born in February 1877, followed by another daughter, Helen Maria, in November 1879, and twins, Mary Elizabeth and Michael Ford, in April 1881.

Sotto quest'influssi, nel 1866 l'artista realizzò Cupido incontra Psiche, su commissione di Miss Cassavetti, desiderosa di avere un ritratto della figlia, la succitata Maria Zambaco.
