Impartible Feud Law and Legal Definition

Impartible feud is a feud or fee which was so conditioned in its creation that it could only descend to the eldest son.

The following is an example of a case law referring to impartible feud:

In England, when the sovereigns began to create honorary feuds, or titles of nobility, it was found necessary to make them impartible, and in consequence descendible to the eldest son alone. [Scott v. Scott, 238 Ind. 474, 489 (Ind. 1958)].
