A free family member (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

auntie

Here is my best explanation:

'family member' is the definition.

(I've seen this before)

'a free' is the subsidiary indication.

'free' becomes 'untie' (I've seen this before).

'a'+'untie'='auntie'

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for auntie that I've seen before include "The BBC (coll.)", "Relative (colloq.)", "BBC's nickname", "BBC nickname", "Close relative", "Unite a strange relative", "The BBC (colloq.)", "BBC; relative (colloq,)", "Female relation" and "Family member".)
