Patrilineality is a system in which one belongs to one's father's lineage; it generally involves the inheritance of property, names or titles through the male line as well.


A patriline is a line of descent from a male ancestor to a descendant (of either sex) in which the individuals in all intervening generations are male. In a patrilineal descent system, an individual is considered to belong to the same descent group as his or her father. This is in contrast to the less common pattern of matrilineal descent.


The agnatic ancestry of an individual is that person's pure male ancestry.


The fact that the Y chromosome is paternally inherited enables patrilines of individuals to be traced through genetic analysis.


In the Bible

The line of descent for monarchs and main personalities is almost exclusively through the main male personalities. See Davidic line.

Patrilineal fertility decline along the Croatian frontier: 1720 - 1850 (29-Oct-1995) (846 words)
In 1976 Richard Easterlin proposed a scenario for the occurrence of high fertility on the edge of a rolling frontier and its decline behind that frontier as the frontier rolled forward.
To be linked to a patriline, a child must be born or marry within the region.
Thus, while the apparent fertility decline may indeed reflect smaller numbers of children ever-born, it may also reflect the tendency of males with few prospects of land-inheritance to out-migrate either before marriage or before all their children are born.
