* A wealthy monopolist's last will involved bettering the city of Philadelphia, including some minor stocks to support the woman in Philadelphia who gave birth to the most children ten years after the will was read... right before the great depression. Suddenly, all his other assets (and the economy of Philadelphia) turned to shit while those "minor stocks" multiplied in worth by the HUNDREDS, and could become a lifesaver for hundreds of bankrupt couples / families. There was a great fucking. End result, most of the money had to be split among the tiebreakers, and a few consolation prizes for those who had even more bebehs but did so by questionable means (like cheating on their husbands).

* While this trope is more found in fiction that it does in real life, it is possible in cases where there was a random exception in families of long lines of only children. After all if you are an only child of like four generations and you die but hey your Great-Great-Grandfather had a brother, then perhaps his descendant may end up getting the one of this trope.
