Per Stirpes

A method for distributing property where each branch of the named person’s family receives an equal share of the property. For example, if a grandfather were to die and leave his property to his three children, and one of his three children was already dead, then that child’s share of the estate would go to the deceased child’s children—the grandfather’s grandchildren.
