The second daughter, Catherine (1850 - 1927) was born to his second wife, Emma. She modelled for several figures in her father’s paintings including the child in ‘Waiting’ and ‘The Nosegay’.

Cathy became an artist. She married a music critic Franz Hueffer. Their eldest son became famous, after a change of surname, as the novelist Ford Madox Ford.
