Question about English (US)

What does "the balance of the estate having gone to his mother" mean?

He was married five years, had three children, lost most of the fifty thousand dollars his father left him, THE BALANCE OF THE ESTATE HAVING GONE TO HIS MOTHER, hardened into a rather unattractive mould under domestic unhappiness with a rich wife; and just when he had made up his mind to leave his wife she left him and went off with a miniature-painter. As he had been thinking for months about leaving his wife and had not done it because it would be too cruel to deprive her of himself, her departure was a very healthful shock.
