FAMILY, domestic relations. In a limited sense it signifies the father,
mother, and children. In a more extensive sense it comprehends all the
individuals who live under the authority of another, and includes the
servants of the family. It is also employed to signify all the relations who
descend from a common ancestor, or who spring from a common root. Louis.
Code, art. 3522, No. 16; 9 Ves. 323.
2. In the construction of wills, the word family, when applied to
personal property is synonymous with kindred, or relations. It may,
nevertheless, be confined to particular relations by the context of the
will, or may be enlarged by it, so that the expression may in some cases
mean children, or next of kin, and in others, may even include relations by
marriage. 1 Rop. on Leg. 115 1 Hov. Supp. 365, notes, 6 and 7; Brown v.
