Heathcote's children, John Moyer Heathcote (Jnr) 1834-1912, and Charles Gilbert Heathcote were also artists. John Moyer Heathcote loved the Fen landscape and invited fellow artists such as Peter de Wint and Edward William Cooke (1811-1880) to paint in the area. Heathcote also took lessons from de Wint, who sometimes completed details of Heathcote's paintings.
