As a lifelong Methodist, I have never heard of John Wesley having any children.  The profile for him cites a printed work that he had a son named "Hall" which seems quote unusual.  I believe the source should be checked.  

Wesley did marry, but married a widow who I think was past child-bearing.  The relationship was not a happy one.

As a direct descendant I have the family tree from the British Museum and there is no mention of John having any children.

Thank you for your message.
