Heirs Male WHATSOEVER??[edit]

I'd be stunned if it could be confirmed that this title has a remainder to "heirs male whatsoever" rather than heirs male "of the body".The "whatsoever" remainder is generally found only in old Scottish titles and means that kinfolk descended in the male line from male-line ancestors of the grantee,as far back as needs to be traced to find one,are eligible if the grantee's issue male die out.Can this be sourced/confirmed?--L.E./ (talk) 02:45, 11 August 2013 (UTC)
