My family have used primogeniture law for 200 years passing estates through the male line. My Uncle died in 2007 with a daughter though he was given an estate because of his name through an offshoot of the family. His daughter died in 2008 leaving a son. In primogeniture law the estate would have passed to my father, who died in 2012. The estate has now been sold. Could I be due anything being the only son of my father.
It was bequeathed to him in 1961 by an offshoot of our family - I have tried to find her Will in the National Archives but cannot find it. We are not talking about a small estate - over 1000 acres and some small farms.
