I think in France custom required that the inheritance be split, leaving a lot of aristocracy with really small holdings.

The English first past the post system left it up to the patriarch how to provide for his excess progeny.

The Roman and Japanese system of adoption, either from from other family branches or through marriage gave some flexibility in ensuring meritocracy.
