Partible inheritance Definition from Encyclopedia Dictionaries & Glossaries
English Wikipedia - The Free Encyclopedia
Partible inheritance is a general term applied to systems of inheritance in which property is apportioned among heirs. It contrasts in particular with primogeniture (common in feudal society), which requires that the whole or most of the inheritance passes to the eldest son, and with agnatic seniority where the succession passes to next senior male.
