Religious differences embittered the struggle, since the Family Compact (the term first appeared c.1828) was composed almost entirely of members of the Church of England.

With respect to family government, it is very important that parents should have a proper idea of the nature of their powers and responsibilities.

Compact Single Family (CSF) is not proposed as a separate land use category in the Land Use Element, but rather as a new zone that would be part of the implementation of a proposed new Low Density Residential land use category.
