Q: he had been in the family for a long time. ne anlama geliyor?
A: > I added an information at the first question box? corner? the top?

I would say "question box". "Question box at the top" also sounds good. "Corner" doesn't sound good here.

Thanks for the quote. It is actually quite funny, full with subtle jokes :) E.g. in "Trespassers after an uncle, and William after Trespassers.", the two "afters" have different meanings.

The "Thresspassers W" board is another joke. It must have been originally something like this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trespasser#/media/File:Auction-storage-no-trespassing-sign-tn1.jpg

Now that I read the whole thing, I think that when Piglet says "had been in the family for a long time", he refers to the broken board. So it means that his family has owned the board for a long time.

Regarding why "had been" and not "have been": it is because it is indirect speech (also called reported speech).

Csaba says now: "I am hungry." → "Csaba says he is hungry."
Csaba says now: "I was hungry." → "Csaba says he was hungry."
Csaba says now: "I have been hungry." → "Csaba says he has been hungry."

Csaba said in the past: "I am hungry." → "Csaba said he *was* hungry."
Csaba said in the past: "I was hungry." → "Csaba said he *had been* hungry."
Csaba said in the past: "I have been hungry." → "Csaba said he *had been* hungry."

Piglet said in the past: "It is my grandfather's name, and has been in the family for a long time." → "Piglet said that it *was* his grandfather's name, and *had been* in the family for a long time."
