Inheritance law question

January 18, 2017 02:08PM
I came across an issue (not exactly in JAFF, I hope it's not wrong to ask here though) about the possibilities of inheriting an earldom, and I would like to ask the legal experts' help about it. It was my understanding that an illegitimate child could not inherit a title, even if later the peer in question marries the mother of the child. Am I wrong here though? I thought, moreover, that the inheritance depends on the original grant of the title and estate by the King: e.g. what happens if there are only daughters. As far as I know it was a rarity that a daughter could inherit the title and be a peeress in her own right, but it could happen. But was it also possible that the title could pass to a daughter's male descendants if there were no other male relatives to inherit (without the daughter actually holding the title)? Maybe if the original patent included this possibility?

Thank you very much!
