Every man is born with a right before any other man, to inherit, with his brethren, his father's goods.
Gist of Idea
There is a natural right to inheritance within a family
John Locke (Second Treatise of Government , 190)
If a child is fully grown, they may well have drifted into a state of partial ownership of the goods of the parent, of which it would be hard then to deprive them. It is hard to see this as a natural right of tiny orphaned infants.
Locke,John: 'Two Treatises of Government' [Everyman 1988], p.214
